Exciting Prospect Nathan Mcfarlane

Exciting Prospect Nathan Mcfarlane

Nathan Mcfarlane is a Lightweight professional boxer from Telford just outside Birmingham. The 27 year old orthodox fighter stands at 5 foot 7 and has had two professional fights winning both of them. As a amateur Mcfarlane had a even record winning 10 out of 20 fights. He told the column that the fights he had were against a lot more experience fighters from the start. Mcfarlane boxes out of the Len Woodall Club and is trained by Brian Robb. I asked this very exciting fighters who is your favourite boxer and why? Mcfarlane told me “My favourite boxer is Roy Jones Jr, he had classes, style, and was very entertaining”. My next question was, what is the favourite fight you have seen? The unbeaten fighter told me “My favourite fight I have watched is Sugar Ray Leonard vs Marvin Hagler, great fight”.

Nathan has been boxing for over 10 years on and off after a football injury, he told me he used boxing for self mediation and a way to releases some anger an keep his fitness levels high. Mcfarlane continued by saying “I have always loved competition and I’m extremely competitive, as my dad was no longer at home I could box as he never allowed me to as he says fighting’s not for fun. Although he has finally came round since my pro debut to support me regardless of his thoughts of me doing it”. Mcfarlane ended by saying “I have had few hard fights but that's the game, fighting is sometimes as hard as you make it, train hard fight easy”. Dexter’s Thoughts

Mcfarlane exploded on the pro fight scene just a few months ago with a great performance on the Tommy Owens Promotions show “By The Sword” against vertebra. Journeyman Kristian Laight. This performance gave him his chance the fight on the “Savage Intentions” show promoted by TOPromotions and Matchroom.

Mcfarlane put on a great performance in his second fight against an opponent who came to win. His opponent tested him all the way but he came through with flying colours. Mcfarlane is a very exciting fighter and has a good following already, he has shown great movement and shot selection in his first two fights and is looking like a very exciting prospect.

The Birmingham Boxing Column look forward to seeing Mcfarlane continue to progress in his career.
