Tyrone McKenna is determined to bounce back from last year's defeat to Ohara Davies when he fights on Carl Frampton's undercard this weekend.

Tyrone McKenna accepts that many will regard him as the underdog going into his fight with Zhankosh Turarov in Dubai this Saturday night and insists that will make victory all the more enjoyable.

Belfast man McKenna finds himself at a crucial point in his career as he prepares to face Turarov who is unbeaten in 24 fights. A points defeat to bitter rival Ohara Davies last year in the final of the Golden Contract was hard to accept and seemed to take all the momentum out of his career. But now he has been handed a clash with a Kazakh prospect who - like McKenna - has world title ambitions as the chief supporting bout to Carl Frampton's battle with WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring.
