Lee McGregor vs Scott Allan for the Commonwealth bantamweight title

Lee McGregor will defend his Commonwealth bantamweight title against fellow Scot Scott Allan in Glasgow on June 22 – live on ESPN+.

Edinburgh’s hugely talented McGregor (5-0, 5 KOs) will headline a sensational bill at Emirates Arena when he collides with Shotts’ Allan (9-3-1) and is eager to seize his opportunity on a huge stage.

The 22-year-old talent won the coveted Commonwealth crown with a 12th-round KO of Thomas Essomba (8-4) last October at the York Hall.

'Lightning' Lee said: “There’s nothing better than fighting in your home country in front of all the Scottish fans. It’s really dreams coming true type of stuff.

“All of us Scottish fighters want to see each other do well and bring big nights back to Scotland and this is just the start.

“I can’t wait to get back in the ring. It’s been a long time out but I’ve been training behind the scenes and I'm still learning new things every day so I just can’t wait.

“I know Allan is a strong game opponent. I have never sparred him because apparently I was ‘too scared’!

“All I can say is that it’s going to be a very interesting fight and I’ll do my talking in the ring on the night.”

McGregor vs. Allan stars on a massive bill alongside another all-Scottish title clash that sees Kieran Smith put his WBC International Silver super-welterweight title on the line against another unbeaten fighter in Michael McGurk.
