Newtongrange featherweight Stephen Tiffney is looking to maintain his unbeaten record in his fourth professional fight next month.

Tiffney will take on an as-yet-unnamed opponent at Meadowbank on March 12, as part of MGM Promotions’ ‘Rise of the Champions’ event.

The 27-year-old, who turned professional last year and has had two points victories and a knockout, isn’t fazed about not knowing who he will face.

He said: “I’m kind of used to it. It happens at this stage for fighters. For my first fight, my opponent got changed two days before the fight.

So you have just got to be ready to fight anyone.

“Training has been good. It wasn’t too long ago that I had my last fight, at the end of January, through in Glasgow.

“I had a week off, then back into the gym for this fight.

“I have got another one at the beginning of May. You have got to keep yourself fit and be ready for fighting.

“That’s at Meadowbank again. It’s good to have them there. It’s a lot easier for the people that want to come and watch me from here.

“I still had about 40 people come to Glasgow – a good wee crowd. They made plenty of noise which was good.

“Obviously there will be a lot more at Meadowbank. The more fights I have, the more people are interested.

“I hope to have a good fight. Hopefully, I get another win. That’s all I’m looking for. I’m fit and feeling confident about getting another win.

“It’s good being part of the MGM stable. It’s a good crowd. Most of them are from 
Lochend Gym, where I train.

“It’s quite good to be amongst it. I just want to keep winning and see how it goes.”
