Tyrone McKenna knows a big performance at the Devenish Complex in Belfast on Saturday night could get him noticed.

The slick southpaw - who will be having his eighth professional - has gone about his business with a touch of class, but he knows that he has to start catching the eye of the paying public.

“I am trying to get my name out there and get more supporters and I will do that by putting on big performances.

“You want to do something on the night that will catch the fans eye and hopefully people notice you,” he added.

McKenna faces Sylwester Walczak on Saturday night and he hopes the Polish fighter has come to fight and not survive.

“When people come forward and come for a fight, I can show case my talents.

“I want fights and I offered Belfast’s Matt Wilton a fight - but he is not training at the minute. I wanted a fight against a local - a local derby.

“Everyone loves a auld derby and I would love a fight like that.

“And I would love to start fighting boys from England and well known names.

“My aim is to get into the British top ten as soon as possible and to do that I have to beat Walczak on Saturday night,” he added.

Dee Walsh headlines the show against Patryk Litkiewicz who boasts a 16-7 record with 10 wins by KO.

Paul Hyland faces Ivans Levickis, James Tennyson tackles Krystof Rogowski, and James Fryers looks to tame another puncher in Sergejs Logins.

Joe Fitzpatrick debuts against Hungarian Ignac Kassai and Gerard Healy faces Pitor Tomaszek.

Doors open 6pm and tickets will be available on the door.
