From: Old­ham. Age: 20. Divi­sion: Wel­ter­weight. Pro Record: 5(4)-0

HIS brother Ron­nie is a great tal­ent, but younger sib­ling Mark is also head­ing in the right di­rec­tion – although he re­ally needs to be­come busy.

Hef­fron turned pro with Ir­ish­man Gary Hyde, who man­ages sev­eral Cubans, and his fights so far have taken place in Hol­land, Poland, Hun­gary, Manch­ester and Ire­land.

Hef­fron boxed North­side ABC as an am­a­teur and trainer Joe Gal­lagher even made com­par­isons with Miguel Cotto.

Hef­fron hasn’t boxed since March and there are ru­mours he may join up with am­bi­tious Sh­effield pro­moter Dave Cold­well.
