Big opponent named for Big Sexy

Heavyweight knock-out artist Sean Turner will be more ‘Little Sexy’ than ‘Big Sexy’ when he steps into the ring at the National Stadium on Saturday.

The popular Dubliner has been shedding the pounds over the last few months at Macklin’s Gym Marbella – and this downsizing will be amplified when he faces Hungarian man-mountain Gabor Farkas on the ‘Second Coming’ show.

38 year old Farkas [7(3)-37(13)-6] is 6’6″ and will tower over the 5’11” Turner. Additionally, the experienced Hungarian is a former foe of Dillian Whyte and World title challenger Johann Duhaupas, and it will be interesting to see how the Irishman will deal with the new challenge he brings.

Tickets are available from the boxers involved and tickets.ie. ‘Second Coming’’ will also be shown exclusively live on Boxnation from 5pm (Sky channel 437).
