PUMPED-up Irvine boxer Ryan Collins admits he has a "score to settle" with Commonwealth Games gold medallist Charlie Flynn when the duo lock horns again next month.

For the second time inside a year Collins, labelled the Railman will take on Flynn, dubbed the Mailman at the SSE Hydro on March 3 for the Celtic Lightweight title at a fight night being organised by CWM Cyclone Promotions, run by Shane McGuigan, son of former world champion Barry.

The 24-year-old Irvine Vineburgh bruiser, who had racked up 13 wins from 16 fights, with a draw and two defeats is counting down the days to what should be a blockbuster showdown on the undercard of Josh Taylor's fight with Mexican warhorse Humberto Soto. It will be screened live on Channel 5 and Spike TV, giving the combatants some major exposure.

Their Celtic Lightweight title fight at the SSE Hydro last April was stopped less than two minutes into the third round of a 10-round contest after an accidental clash of heads and it ended in a technical draw.

And minutes after the fight Collins took to Facebook to hit out at Commonwealth Games gold medallist Flynn, who suffered a cut in the incident and accused him of head butting.

Collins heard last Friday the rematch was officially on, a week after calling Flynn out for a rematch.

He is positively relishing the showdown and said: "This is the fight people were demanding to see and I'm delighted that it's finally happening. My manager called me to say we would be on at the Hydro and I will be ready for it. I had been duo to fight at the Lagoon Centre before that was called off so I feel in good shape."

For the Irvine fighter this will be very much of a grudge match.

He added: "I respect Charlie Flynn as a boxer but he said some not very nice things about me after the last Hydro fight and I feel I have a score to settle with him. A win would put me not far from the top 10 in the division and a potential British or Commonwealth title shot, hopefully in the near future. The tickets will go on sale before the end of the week.

"I'm looking for another massive crowd and I reckon this fight had to take place as I could attract 300 to 500 fans and he could attract a few hundred - you could have 1,000 coming to watch our fight alone and the other boxers will have strong support. I think Charlie will have been told he had to take this fight. Hopefully I can show people what I'm all about and I won't need any motivation for this one."
