It has been announced that light welterweight Szymon Holona has put pen to paper on a managerial deal with the outfit behind the Celtic Clash series.
Born in the southwestern Polish town of Rybnik but living in Dublin the last few years, Holona is a game power puncher.
Having boxed amateur both in Ireland and Poland – including winning the Irish Novice title – ‘The Polish Express’ also fought on the semi-pro circuit as well. Most notably, Holona engaged in a war with new stablemate Martin Quinn.
The big-punching Pole has been training at the Hyland Boxing Academy for a prolonged period and is the latest boxer from Eddie’s stable to join up with Boxing Ireland following Carl McDonald, Jake Hanney, Graham McCormack, and Siobhán O’Leary.
A debut date will be confirmed shortly, with an appearance on a to-be-announced show in September the plan.
