Jack Kilgannon is looking to bounce back after title heartbreak in September 2023.
He attempted to win the Central Middleweight title for the second time, but was knocked out by Dan Catlin inside three rounds, falling through the ropes and landing badly on the floor.

It was far cry from his h s career highlight so far, came when he edged out John Telford over ten rounds to claim the vacant Central area crown and put himself in line for an English title crack.
After boxing’s Covid break he returned in September 2021 and stopped Pole Damian Stanislawski in the fourth round of their six rounder - an impressive performance after two years parked up.
He turned professional in July 2017 after a solid amateur career where he won 32 of his 46 bouts and won numerous regional titles.
Before his title winning performance against Telford, Kilgannon developed nicely in learning fights beating men like Lewis van Poetsch, Jordan Grannum and Serge Ambono - all top tests for prospects.
In April 2022 he had been due to top the bill in Wigan on a VIP show, but at 48 hours notice he took a short notice job against prospect Zak Chelli.
Jack lost in six rounds, but showed a lot of heart against his fancied rival before being stopped in the scheduled eight rounder.
He returned seven months later and outpointed Tanzania’s Meshack Mwankemwa, and in his first fight of 2023 in June outscored Ramiro Blanco over six
