FORMER Crystal Palace striker Leon McKenzie is set for his professional boxing debut at the end of June at York Hall, Bethnal Green, and tickets are now available to watch him leave a 'trail of destruction'. The 35-year-old is currently training at his uncle Duke McKenzie's Fitness Centre gym in south London and he is urging all boxing and Palace fans to come along and back him in his first fight on Saturday, June 29. In training recently, he has also been sparring – and holding his own – with Olympic gold medal-winning fight James De Gale. Furthermore, he is holding a special media day to watch him practice in the gym next Wednesday. McKenzie's opponent is yet to be announced, but says he can't wait to get into the ring. "This is very serious for me, something I have always wanted to do," he said. "In the last five years of my life I have been tested - sometimes through my own bad choices, sometimes through circumstance. "I am overwhelmed to be stepping into a professional boxing ring. I respect the game and respect anyone that gets into that ring. I fully believe I can do this. "For myself and my family, we all know the road I have been on so what I am doing is an achievement in itself. "I have been through so much and I can't wait to achieve this long-held dream." Tickets are £35 standard, £60 ringside, or £100 VIP, which includes seats, a free bar and car parking space. York Hall is where his father Clinton McKenzie had his first bout as well.To purchase, email TeamMckEvents@gmail.com or call the booking line on 075956997232.
