‘Celtic Clash 6’ takes place in Drimnagh at Good Counsel GAA club on Saturday June 16th and a BUI Celtic title fight will feature on the bill.
Following a heroic performance last month in a rematch with Stephen McAfee where he was edged out on a split-decision for the BUI Celtic super featherweight title, Cork’s Colin O’Donovan [1(1)-2(1)-1] will return and drops two weights to take on Tallaght’s Carl McDonald [3(0)-1(0)] for the inaugural BUI Celtic super bantamweight belt.
Both fighters featured on ‘Celtic Clash 5’ at the same venue, with O’Donovan rematching McAfee while McDonald made his return from a spell out with a four-round win over Trayan Slavev.
The Hungarian is a common opponent and was stopped in the third round by O’Donovan on his debut back in September on ‘Celtic Clash 3’. The co-headliner at the National Stadium that night was McDonald – who lost a six-round grudge-match with Regan Buckley.
The pair both enter the fight with losing (and an additional draw in O’Donovan’s case) all-Irish previous and will be looking to score a domestic win in their more natural weight category.
There were also a number of undercard fighters confirmed for the bill tonight, with Limerick light middle Graham McCormack O’Shea [2(0)-0], Lucan welter John Joyce [5(3)-0], East Wall light welter Jake Hanney [5(4)-1(1)], and BUI Celtic featherweight champion Eric Donovan [7(4)-0] all set to feature – and many more still to be announced.
