Tyrone McKenna, the Mighty Celt of Irish boxing, feared he had been forgotten, but he’s set to stage a triumphant comeback on September 16 in Dublin. His return to the ring against the undefeated Nicholas Esposito for the IBO world title promises to be a spectacular showdown.

McKenna’s welterweight journey hit a pause after his thrilling blood-soaked clash with Chris Jenkins at the SSE Arena in August last year. Now, he’s on a mission to make up for lost time and seize the opportunity that could propel him towards the coveted world title shot he’s tirelessly pursued throughout his captivating career.

“It’s not just any fight,” McKenna declared with intrigue, reflecting on his upcoming duel with the 17-0 Italian sensation, Esposito. “There’s a championship belt at stake.”

McKenna has endured a frustrating hiatus, not due to injury, lack of training, or a wavering desire to compete, but rather a streak of unfortunate circumstances. He expressed his exasperation, emphasizing that he remains fit and healthy. At 33, he recognizes the urgency of these pivotal years and is determined not to squander them on the sidelines.

“It’s been a full year since my last fight,” he lamented. “But it’s not been because of any lack of dedication. I’ve been diligently maintaining my fitness, managing my weight, and staying primed for a comeback. Finally, the opportunity has presented itself, and it’s a significant one. This fight will elevate my standing and put me in the spotlight for a potential world title shot, something I’ve been tirelessly working towards.”

McKenna’s journey featured a setback against Regis Prograis in Dubai in March last year, but he roared back to triumph over Jenkins in a classic, all-out brawl that thrilled not just the hardcore boxing fans but also captivated the casual audience. His determination burns brightly as he strives to re-enter the world title conversation.
