G Train defeated Jordan Latimer in an enthralling four-round fight last month and fights on the Sam Kynoch Show, with more in just over a month.

Irish fight fans will know McCormack from his BUI Celtic title fight against Jay Byrne; Byrne beat McCormack on points back in May of 2018.

The 28-year-old Dundee fighter's only two defeats have come in title fights. He lost to Stefan Sanderson - a fighter Jay Byrne defeated - in a Scottish title fight, and to Hamzah Sheeraz in a fight for the WBO light-middleweight European ranking title.

The Scot certainly represents a step up for the Treaty county fighter but McCormack will go into the clash confident and told Irish-boxing.com that his return fight with Latimer proved perfect prep.

“I feel it was the perfect comeback fight after so long out of the ring,” he continues.
