Another addition to Red Corner Promotions show

Red Corner Promotions have confirmed an eighth boxer for their show at the National Stadium next month.

Navan prospect Chris Blaney [4(2)-0] will feature on the card in his third fight at the famous Dublin venue on Saturday February 25th.

The bout is intended to be Blaney’s final four rounder before he makes the step up to six, and he is also aiming to weigh in under the 168lbs super middleweight limit as he targets a move down toward middleweight.

The Meath fighter joins Craig O’Brien, Jake Hanney, Connor Coyle, Allan Phelan, Jay Byrne, Eric Donovan and Noely Murphy on the card, with more to be confirmed in the near future.

An opponent for Blaney, and the rest of the boxers on the bill, will be announced in the near future.
