Top Pro Gif Ad
Matt Conway [6(3)-0] has had a date confirmed for his West Virginia state title fight, and it will be a family affair.

The light welterweight of Cork descent will face Zack Kuhn [9(4)-2(1)-1] at the Wheeling Island Casino on Saturday November 19th. The 21 year old headlines the ‘Fall Brawl’ show and the undercard will feature the professional debut of his older brother Mike (right of photo).

What’s more, Mike Conway will make his pro bow against Kuhn’s brother Christopher [0-2(2)].

Matt Conway last boxed during the Summer, fighting to a six-round draw with Chris Alexander, but saw the result changed to a ‘no contest’ following his opponent failing a drugs test. Zack Kuhn comes in to the title bout on the back of a four-fight winning streak.
