Celtic Warriors UFC Fight Pass take over

The Celtic Warrior crew will be back out in Belgium on May 1.

A host of the Pascal Collins trained fighters last appeared in the Benelux country on March 20 and they return again on what is fast becoming a massive weekend for Irish boxing.

There will also be considerably more spotlight on the card and their respective fights this time around as event will be broadcast on the UFC Fight Pass platform.

The 12 Round Promotions and Murphys Boxing card, which plays out in the County Hall, Liege, will see Spike O’Sullivan [30(21)-4(3)-0] return, Dublin heavyweight Thomas Carty debut and Ray Moylette [12(5)-1(1)], Craig O’Brien [12(1)-2(1)] and Niall O’Connor [6(4)-0] return to Belgium for the second successive time.

Cork’s O’Sullivan fights for the first time since he was defeated by Jaime Munguia in January of last year. The Mahon light middle has been linked to his Golden Boy boss Oscar De La Hoya in recent months, but the latest rumour doing the rounds suggests a final world title eliminator is in the pipeline.

Moylette, O’Brien and Niall O’Connor all put sabbaticals out of the ring behind them in Belgium in March, defeating Adam Walas, Daniel Przewieslik and Angelo Turco respectively, they will most likely be looking for some form of testing clash this time around.

For Carty the fight night will play host to his pro debut. Opponents have yet to be confirmed for what looks a stacked card.

The news makes it a massive weekend for Irish boxing with Michael Conlan facing Ionut Baluta on April 30 and Katie Taylor versus Natasha Jonas also taking place on May 1.
