Noely Murphy will look to make it ten in a row next month.
The Macroom welterweight has this evening had a fight date confirmed here he will look to build on his recent career-best win.
Murphy [9(2)-0] will box in the Paramount Theatre at Long Island University in Brooklyn on Thursday May 18th.
It’s a Stateside return for the New York-based Cork boxer who made his Irish debut back in February. Here Murphy defeated Galician Avelino Vazquez via an eight-round points decision to claim the BUI Celtic title in front of a large and loud support.
Following this fight, Murphy expressed an interest in facing Irish champion Peter McDonagh.
An opponent for the Lou DiBella-promoted prospect will be announced in the near future,
