OVILL McKENZIE has never had things easy. Last year he travelled to Argentina on two weeks notice and fought IBF cruiserweight champion Victor Ramirez to a draw, despite appearing to get the better of the action. He then picked up an ankle injury, scuppering his vacant European title fight with Dmytro Kucher. Now, however, he has a huge opportunity against Marco Huck on September 24, and he can’t wait.

You must be over the moon to get such a big opportunity.

Yeah, I’m absolutely over the moon with it, I’m in such a good place. I’m on top of the world, I couldn’t believe I got this chance, it’s great news.
