Lewis McGrillen was anticipating a showdown with Jamie Kelly when the cage doors shut in Bolton, but that’s since changed. Sheldon Ryan will step in for his pro debut after Jamie Kelly was forced to withdraw from the bout.
Lewis McGrillen vs Sheldon Ryan
When Lewis and Sheldon clash in Bolton, it will have been a long time coming. The pair have already been linked to one another before in the amateur scene. Yet, it didn’t pan out due to the covid pandemic. That may be the most intriguing fight on this circuit we saw removed due to the pandemic.
Sheldon Ryan has been consistent in wanting to fight Lewis McGrillen either as an amateur or a professional, and June 25th he gets his opportunity. This fight is as big a pro debut as you could imagine, and Sheldon Ryan plans to show the world what he’s capable of in Bolton.
Left Hook Lew believes he will go straight through Sheldon, just like he’d go through anyone else on the circuit. This fight holds all of the tension you could ask for, and fills in as a massive Flyweight scrap for Full Contact Contender. McGrillen plans to move into a different stratusphere once propelling himself with another big performance. If he shows out the way he has been in his prior pro bouts, then that’ll be no surprise.
