Visa issues won't be a problem says confident Sean McComb ahead of Boston fight night

SEAN McComb was denied entry to the USA at pre-clearance at Dublin Airport on Wednesday and only arrived in Boston for tonight's fight yesterday.

McComb needed a letter from Matchroom Boxing to confirm that he wouldn't be earning money during his short stay here and with his visa issues now sorted out, he doesn't expect to be under-par for his fight against Carlos Galindo (1-5).

“I'll be alright,” said McComb (3-0).

“I was on the go for a load of hours yesterday but I got a good night's sleep and got up bang on the weight. I'm ready to rock and roll, I can't wait.”

Yesterday's weigh-in was held at the palatial Boston Harbour Hotel and the normally laid back McComb admitted he was “seriously taken back by it all”.

“It's massive,” he said.

“Seriously, when you see Freddie Roach and all these other top names walking about, you are taken back by it all but this is what it's all about, these are the memories you make in boxing.

“It's massive to be part of a big show like this in my fourth fight. It's an opportunity and I'm out here to show my skill, hopefully make a few new US fans and get back again.”

His opponent Galindo is 37 but picked up an expected win in his last fight.

“He beat a guy with 12 wins and two losses, so he could be dangerous,” said McComb.

“I have to aware of that and get behind my jab and do what I'm good at.”
