It might not be December 25th just yet, but Drumchapel boxer Jamie McGuire says he'll be as restless as a kid on Christmas Eve ahead of his Scottish Super-Featherweight title fight with Jordan McCorry on Saturday.

The Drum fighter's excitement has taken over in recent days, as he looks forward to the biggest fight of his career at the Paisley Lagoon Centre in two days time.

After preparing for the fight over the last few months, the 28-year-old says he can't wait to show off his hard work in the ring and was confident of getting a victory over his opponent.

He said: "I want to go out there and just do the business, all the hard work’s finished.

"It’s gone well but it’s not been easy – but it’ll be worth it when I win on fight night.

"I’ve had butterflies all week, I’m getting worse and worse as the week goes on, Friday I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep it’ll be like Christmas."

McGuire's record as a pro boxer sits at 8-1-1, with his more experienced opponent's record being 12-3-1.

McCorry is looking to become a two weight Scottish champion after winning the Scottish Lightweight Championship in 2015.

McGuire has tried to vary his sparring partners as much as possible in the build-up to the fight, and is prepared for any eventuality.

He added: "I’ve been sparring with a lot of different boys with different styles because you might have to adapt in the fight, so I’ve tried to spar with as many different people as I can."

McGuire's week got off to a good start after he became an uncle for the fifth time, with his younger brother and girlfriend's baby boy Rio being born yesterday.

McGuire also thanked sponsors PF Boxing, the Peel Bar, Alex Black Funeral Care and ALBA Promotions for their help.
