Maree Boxing’s super-middleweight sensation Mark Heffron is back in action on Saturday for his 13th professional outing.

The 24-year-old, who is currently training with Pat Barrett at Collyhurst and Moston Lads Club in Manchester, will face Nicaraguan fighter Michael Mora at Fusion Nightclub in Liverpool.

The British number 10, who goes by the alias ‘Kid Dynamite’, registered his 12th win at the beginning of the month, his 10th inside the distance, as he beat Attila Tibor Nagy at the Middleton Arena.

Heffron, who is hoping to challenge Jahmaine Smyle’s reign as English champion next year, stopped his Hungarian foe after just one minute and 12 seconds of the second round.
