THE WORDS “last chance saloon” and heavyweight boxer, John McDermott seemed to have been bandied about for quite a time. But here we are in 2012 and Horndon-based John is still in it and still having tilts at titles.
On Saturday, January 19th, John takes on the much fancied “British Klitschko” David Price at the Liverpool Arena.
The experts say that this is just a straight forward fight for Price as he looks to take on Tyson Fury but John McDermott is an awkward boxer who will know where the weak points are with Price.
YT went down to the Belhus Boxing Club in South Ockendon to speak to John after training as well as his coach, Jason Rowland.
