Another intriguing All Irish fight added to ‘The Beginning’ bill

Dominic Donegan [5(2)-2(0)-1] and James Cahill [2-0] have agreed to a mouthwatering all Irish middleweight clash.

The Wicklow – Cavan meeting is the latest fight to be added to Nowhere2Hyde’s ‘The Beginning’ bill and will take place in Cork on April 2.

The interesting out-of-the-blue pairing and fight that will capture the attention, will take place on a card that already has a mouthwatering all Irish clash between Niall O’Connor and Jake Hanney.

Debutant Tommy Hyde tops the card, while Danny Keating, Kevin Cronin, Jamie Morrissey, Dylan Wilson, Rhys Moran and Rohan Polanco also appear.

.Donegan has been linked to the all over in recent years. Indeed, a fight with Owen O’Neill was said to be signed and sealed, while the likes of a Cavan derby with Owen Duffy had been discussed as had a clash with Cahill’s gym mate Eddie Treacy.

Cahill on the other hand hasn’t been active to be linked with any fighters.

Following over three-and-a-half years away from the competitive ring the Bray fighter only recently confirmed he was on the comeback trail.

‘Chopper’ had impressed as a teenage prospect in 2017, winning two fights and showing a nice pro-style on Celtic Clash 3 and 4 before stepping back from the sport due to work and family commitments.

He now looks set for a serious return and will fight Donegan, who had a turbulent 2021 thanks to two surprise defeats and a draw.
