Drumchapel boxer Ahmed Ibrahim wants to get back on track after losing his first fight as a professional boxer in May.

The former Thai boxing star, whose record sits at 3-1-1, faces Welshman Rhys Saunders on Friday night at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

The welterweight, who turned pro last year, got off to the ideal start, winning his first three pro fights.

But a draw against Yaddollah Ghasemi followed by a loss against Cori Gibbs, after Ibrahim was beaten comprehensively by the Birmingham man in May, ho moved to 11-0 after the win.

Despite his opponent previously challenging current IBO Inter-continental super lightweight champion Jason Easton for the Celtic title last year, said his opponent was nothing to be fearful over.

He said: “I watched him [Saunders] fight Jason Easton for the Celtic title, and Jason stopped him, he’s nothing special.

“I need to get this win, the prep’s been good. I’ve been sparring with all sorts. I’ve sparred with people like Willie Limond and Callan McAulay.

“I’ve just been working on everything in general, because as I said before I’m new to this boxing game. The more I get time I get in the gym the better it is for me, the more I learn.”

If all goes to plan Ibrahim is hoping to get at least two more fights in before the end of the year, with the Drum boxer scheduled to fight on October 28.

Ibrahim thanked his sponsors MacAdam Asphalt, Kris Sports Therapy and Salvage Car Collection for their support.

Tickets are still available for the fight, starting at £100. If you are interesting in buying tickets, contact Ahmed via his Facebook or Twitter pages.
