Top Pro Gif Ad
Niall Kennedy [5(3)-0] will box in Ireland for the first time in a year this November.

The well-supported Wexford heavyweight has been added to the Red Corner Promotions show at the National Stadium on Saturday November 5th.

It is a return to the South Circular Road for the Gorey big man where he claimed the 2007 Intermediate title and was a regular at the Senior Championships.

It will be Boom Boom Baz’s third fight of 2016 and a welcome return to Ireland following two early knockout wins on the US East Coast.

Kennedy will box in a six-round contest against an opponent who will be confirmed closer to the date.

Kennedy joins Celtic Warrior team-mates Luke Keeler and Lynn Harvey on the card, as well as Breen Team duo Feargal McCrory and Ruairi Dalton, with Balbriggan’s Crank Whitehouse also featuring.
