MATTHEW Macklin won’t be the only ‘Mack’ returning to the National Stadium on August 30 as Belfast Tommy McCarthy has been added to the Sky Sports broadcast card.
The former National Senior Heavyweight champion will return to the venue were he excelled as an amateur for the first time since turning pro and will trade leather on the undercard of Matthew Macklin’s homecoming.
The popular Belfast big man has already sent out a statement of pro intent dispatching tough journey men Imantas Davidaitis and Rolandas Cesna since turning over in May. He now has the chance to catch Matchroom and Eddie Hearn’s eye with another impressive display against a yet to be named opponent on August 30.
Hearn also confirmed John Ryder, Tommy Coyle and Declan Geraghty will join Matthew Macklin, Kal Yafai, Luke Keeler, Anthony Joshua, Anthony Fitzgerald and Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan on the card.
