MICKEY ELLISON is still looking to climb the domestic rankings even though his career has received a sprinkling of setbacks. The Lancashire joiner had been in the form of his career, but ran into red-hot Irish hope, Padraig McCrory in September. He was caught cold and stopped in the first round. Manager, Steve Wood is backing Ellison to recover from that blow to his confidence and get back into the title picture even if it’s at Area level initially. He’d won three in the spin before McCrory.
He also, outpointed VIP team-mate Charlie Schofield in a ten rounder broadcast nationally on Spike, then stopped Gianni Antoh and 9-1-1 Christian Kinsiona in impressive fashion.
Ellison did challenge for the vacant Central Area Super-Middleweight crown against Jack Sellars in March 2019, but lost by the narrowest of margins.
With plenty of experience behind him now, Ellison will return in the coming months ready to go in at the deep end once again.
