View Full Version : Shay Walsh Wins At Ikon 3; Gets McGurk Next

BritMMA.co.uk caught up with Shay Walsh after his victory over Danny Welsh at Ikon 4. He's back in the gym now and raring to go again; next time out against the 5-2 Pete McGurk at Fight Stars in September!!!

"The break's over for me," asserted Walsh. "The only difference with training will be to work around peaking, because I'm still quite a few weeks away from the fight. At this time, I don't have to go mega hard on my cardio, but I can concentrate on trying to keep a little bit of weight on, and get a bit stronger. Then, I can work on the explosiveness and speed when it gets closer.

"When you're quite far from a fight, I can just go in the gym and work on everything; on every single aspect and improve that way. When we have got an opponent confirmed though, which will obviously happen closer to the day, we can start work on a specific gameplan. From there, everything should have hopefully got that little bit better since the last fight."

Shay is a big prospect- He fights hometown favourite Pete Mcgurk 6-2-0 on Fightstars 6- Nottingham Oceana.

Very good prospect and seems to have his head screwed on regarding his career and progression.

Wish him all the best.
