PROFESSIONAL fighter Mad Max will jet off to Jamaica to prepare for the biggest bout of his career.

Max – real name Denniston Sutherland – is returning to his roots for two weeks of training before he steps into the ring against current middleweight champion Mark Weir in London on Saturday, June 25.

While in the Caribbean the 38-year-old will be training with Team Dungeon, home to top fighters such as Christopher McDonald and Dwayne Hinds.

Max, who founded Hemel Martial Arts in Fensomes Alley last year, hopes a good performance in this latest bout will secure him a place in the Ultimate Fighting Championship – the highest level of fighting.

He said: “What you have to do is keep knocking on the door. It is definitely the biggest fight of my career.”

To date Max has competed in 27 fights – at professional level he has won 15 bouts and lost six.

>Five fighters from Hemel Martial Arts are preparing to step into the ring at the Watford Colosseum this August.
