Darren Traynor on track for shot at championship glory
Boxer wants to emulate his heroes
ABERDEEN super-featherweight Darren Traynor today vowed to emulate his heroes – by claiming major professional title success.
The 25-year-old is set to fight for the fourth time in the paid ranks at the St Andrew’s Boxing Club in Glasgow on Monday.
Former Golden Gloves amateur champion Traynor hopes it is another step towards championship glory, just like the boxing legends who inspired him.
He said: “When I look at my boxing idols like Rocky Marciano and Sugar Ray Leonard, they had a warrior heart and won titles.
“Like them, I want to win major belts in the professional ranks.
“At 25 years old, this is my time and I aim to make the most of this opportunity.
“I have the boxing tools, the dedication and the heart to be a champion.”
