Dennis McCann Easily Shuts Out Juan Jose Jurado

One of the hottest young prospects in the United Kingdom is bantamweight Dennis “The Menace” McCann (10-0, 6ko). The 20-year-old comes with high praise as WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has dubbed him a future world champion. Queenberry Promotions head honcho Frank Warren has compared his young star to Hall of Fame fighter Prince Naseem Hamed.

His amateur resume is nothing to sneeze at: 50-4, nine national titles, and three ABA crowns. This power-punching bantamweight will be looking to excite the crowd by taking on light-punching Argentinian Juan Jose Jurado (15-4-3, 1ko).

There have been many upsets in boxing, but Jurado has lost his last four fights with him being knockout in the last two. Moreover, he will be fighting outside of his home country for the first time.


Jurado came out like a ball of fire, looking to jump on the younger less experienced McCann. However, he was no match for the more skillful, undefeated fighter. McCann was razor-sharp using the height and reach advantage to perfection.

The Menace controlled the pace with the jab and couldn’t miss with the straight left-hand, as Jurado’s head stayed on the centerline. Moreover, he attack the body after realizing the much older Argentinian was a little soft around the belly.


As the fight continued, McCann shifted gears and started using his superior footwork to attack from different angles, then slide away to avoid counter-shots. McCann suffered a cut over the left eye from a clash of heads in the sixth round after punishing Jurado up against the ropes with body shots.

The cut did not seem to bother him at all. The young man picked up the pace by pinning Jurado against the ropes and ripping off vicious punches, always finishing with the left hook to the body.

Jurado had moments towards the end of the fight, landing counter right-hands, but McCann remained calm. He landed clean right hooks and more body shots, taking back control of the fight.

When the final bell sounded, McCann was awarded the victory by a shutout score of 80-72. After the fight, the undefeated prospect revealed he may have broken his left hand.

It was a good learning experience for McCann, and the ceiling for his career is high going into 2022.
