With an 11 fight card in the offering, Co-promotor Paul Graham explainede that the main event was an easy choice “We had a few options for the main event, however I feel that Paul (Allison) in with Gary (McCallum) is a good domestic fight and both fighters will do nothing but entertain. They both are at the stage were they want to progress their career to the next level, and an area title fight is the way to progress it.”
While joint promoting with Chris Gilmour, the former pro referee admits that there is a rivalry between them both “Well, Paul Allison is my fighter and Gary McCallum is Chris Gilmour’s fighter. So that itself adds another dimension to the main event, and we both have confidence in our fighters. But there can be only one winner on the evening,
“I am looking forward to returning to Motherwell, the local support over the last few shows has been great, so its good to reward them with a stacked card like this. On the evening we have eleven fights scheduled and that includes a title fight, and with a licensed bar in the venue, it will be a good evening.”
