Comeback opponent named for Lynn Harvey

In less than two weeks time, Lynn Harvey [1(1)-1(0)] will look to begin the rebuilding operation following her first career loss .

The big-punching Dubliner fights on the MHD Promotions ‘Inquisition’ bill at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on February 4th, and will make her return to the ring against Hungarian journeywoman Agnes Draxler [9(1)-13(8)].

‘The Hunter’ has changed trainers to Tommy McCormack since the loss to Mary Romero back in November and Harvey also intends to move down to light flyweight going forward. This will begin next Saturday in a 4×2-minute bout and will continue on Saturday February 25th at the National Stadium on the Red Corner Promotions ‘Unfinished Business.’

‘Mini’ Draxler, now 21, has been a pro fighter since the age of 16 and has fought all over Europe as the away fighter. In this time she has lost to the likes of French champion Amira Hamzaoui (TKO3), and top contenders such as Oezlem Sahin (TKO2 twice) and Anne Sophie Da Costa (TKO3).

Also featuring on the Paul Hyland Jr-headlined card are Dubliner Jay Byrne, lightweight rivals Feargal McCrory and Joe Fitzpatrick, and Scot Ronnie Clark.

Tickets for Inquisition are priced at:
£75.00 (VIP Ringside – Including 4 course meal)
£45.00 Reserved Ringside
£35.00 Unreserved

These can be bought from the boxers (recommended) or by phoning +447712 473905
