Fighting Scots Gym boxer Aidan Mcglynn is determined a long term shoulder injury won’t derail his future in the sport.

A decorated amateur, Mcglynn made his semi-professional debut on the fourth Fight Club card at the Alona Hotel in November with a victory over Martin Sweeney.

A shoulder injury ruled him out of the next event in February, but he will be back in action for Fight Club 6 on Saturday, May 23.

Mcglynn said: “It was great to get back in the ring and it was a tough fight, but I was pleased with how it went.

“I know I can get better, but that just requires me getting more fights under
my belt.

“It was disappointing to miss the February show due to my shoulder, I lost three years as amateur due to it and was told I should quit the sport, but I’m determined it won’t stop me.

“I’ve been back in the gym since then and had physio and it feels fine, it is the right which is my leading hand, but so long as I keep it stable it should be okay.”

Mcglynn has yet to find out who he will be taking on next month, but is not unduly concerned to be in the dark.

He said: “I am still waiting to find out who I am facing, but it won’t be a problem who I end up in the ring with.

“I fought an ex-professional last time who definitely came to win and I acquitted myself well so it doesn’t matter who my opponent is.

“Truly I’ll just be happy to get back in the ring and be boxing again.”
