Another show announced as new promoter enters the Irish scene

We are being spoilt for choice this year in terms of Irish fight cards.

This evening a seventh show set to take place on the island this year has been announced.

For this one we will be returning to Ireland’s fight capital, Belfast, for some small hall action from a new face on the scene.

Former pro Mark Ginley will make his entry onto the scene on Friday March 3rd at the Devenish Complex in West Belfast. The Oliver Plunkett’s man was known during his time as a fighter as being one of the most entertaining small hall scrappers around, and he will be looking to translate the excitement into the shows that he promotes.

The 28 year old is the head honcho of ‘Ginley Promotions‘ and has ran successful semi-pro shows in recent years. Now he makes the move onto the increasingly-packed professional scene.

A hugely well-liked and well-connected figure in Belfast, Ginley promises that “we have a fantastic array of Irish boxing talent scheduled to appear.”

Ticket information will be announced soon, with tickets going on sale next week.
