Jobstown duo Carl McDonald and Dylan McDonagh headline the bill in their vacant Irish super bantamweight title fight while there is also a six-round lightweight war between Martin Quinn and Karl Kelly as chief support.
In addition to this there will be an eight-fight undercard – along with a short set from Aslan legend Christy Dignam.
The eight undercard opponents have now been confirmed and there looks to be some tasty matches.
Bray light middleweight Eddie Treacy [1(1)-0] following a quick-fire debut last night looks to have a real fight on his hands. ‘The Honey Badger’ goes in with Belfast-Angolan Julio Cesar [1(0)-3(2)] who holds a significant size advantage.
Treacy faces ‘The Belfast Gladiator’ and Crumlin super feather Aiden Metcalfe [2(0)-0] is set to go in against ‘The Belfast Spartan’. Alec Bazza [0-38(6)-3] is hugely respected in the game for his game approach to fights and, just last week, gave Kelvin McDonald a tough debut.
In another good match, Crumlin welter Martin Wall [1(1)-0] goes up against Bulgarian veteran Radoslav Mitev [11(3)-43(16)-2] who will be facing his eleventh Irishman and second in the space of seven days. On Saturday gone Mitev went four rounds with Belfast’s Tony Nellins – a prospective future opponent of Wall – and it will be interesting to see the comparisons here.
Sallynoggin’s Stephen McAfee [4(2)-0-1] was due to face Feargal McCrory for the Irish super featherweight title until the Tyrone man’s unfortunate withdrawal with injury but ‘Showtime’ remains on the bill. McAfee takes on physically-larger Pole Michael Krawczyk [1(0)-0], a good kickboxer who has recently transitioned to boxing, over six rounds.
In another six rounder, Stillorgan middle Cillian Reardon [3(0)-0] faces Bangor’s Casey Blair [5(1)-47(11)] who gave Taylor McGoldrick a real scare in his last all-Irish fight.
Having seen a fight fall through at the last minute last month, Lynn Harvey [4(3)-1(0)] will take on her previously intended opponent Kitti Kolompar [1(0)-4(2)] of Hungary who brought top French fighter Anne Sophia Da Costa the distance last time out.
Making her debut, Kerry-Limerick super feather Siobhán O’Leary goes in against Hungarian Klaudia Csaszar [1(1)-1(0)-1] who enters off the back of a first round stoppage in her homeland last month and has also gone the full six rounds with top Italian lightweight prospect Sara Corazza.
Finally there is Keane McMahon [4(1)-0]. The Smithfield welter suffered a family bereavement earlier this month but bravely remains on the card. ‘The Iceman’ will face Bulgarian Serguey Stefanov [1(0)-7(6)].
