Having amassed a 5-1 record, the 22-year-old will be looking to kick on towards title contention in 2018.

“He’s back in the gym and really getting his head down,” said Preston-based trainer John Donaghy.

“We want to try and make a bit of a breakthrough this year.

“In two or three fights we’ll start looking at him fighting for titles.

“These lads have got to test themselves now against fighters with similar records.

“It’s going to get to the stage soon where we need to crack on.”

MacMillan’s March opponent is yet to be confirmed with a packed Black Flash Promotions show headlined by Dale Coyne and Matty Ryan’s clash for the Central Area middleweight title.

“It’s a really good show,” said Donaghy.

“Dale Coyne and Matty Ryan should be some scrap and there are lots of other top prospects.”
