All-Irish headline fight for Belfast card POSTPONED


The headline fight of the Kieran Farrell Promotions card in Belfast next month has been unfortunately postponed.

The young promoter returns to the Devenish Venue on the Finaghy Road on Friday October 6th for another night of packed-out ‘small hall’ action – but the show has been hit by the postponement of the all-Irish bill-topper.

Derry prospect Sean McGlinchey [2(0)-0] was due to step up to eight rounds to face Belfast veteran Ger Healy [6(0)-4(1)-1] for the Celtic Nations middleweight title. Unfortunately though, McGlinchey was hospitalised recently with a virus though, and will be unable to fight on the card.

It is a postponement rather than an outright cancellation, and manager of both Farrell intends for the fight to take place this year, perhaps at the end of November.

Also confirmed today, Belfast super bantamweight Sean Magee [1(1)-0] has also been forced off the bill via injury.

A five fight card remains. The new headline fight sees previous chief support Pádraig McCrory [1(0)-0] step up to six rounds to take on South African provincial champion Jade Karam [9(4)-4(2)-2].

The St James super middle debuted on the Ryan Burnett v Lee Haskins card in June, bringing a large crowd which promises to be even bigger on October 6th

Also featuring on the Kieran Farrell Promotions bill in just over two weeks time will be Mark Morris, Sean Creagh, Mathew Fitzsimons, and Dylan Moran.

In addition, there will be live music from Pat Weldon on the night.

Tickets cost £25 (standing), £35 (seated), and £55 (ringside), and are available to buy from the boxers involved.
