Con Sheehan will look to quadruple the amount of professional fights, and wins, he has had since turning over in 2015 before November is done.
New trainer Peter Fury is keen to move the former Irish amateur along rather quickly and the Tipp heavy will fight twice in a week in England for MGM on September 24th and October 1st, with a Belfast November date also lined up.
Sheehan, who has been somewhat frustrated with the lack of action since he decided to ditch the belt, is happy to have a fight plan laid out and has no concerns about two fights in seven days.
Indeed, the quick turnover is something the six time Irish amateur champion is familiar with. As an elite amateur Sheehan would have boxed a couple of days apart on international duty and against the best in the World and feels that seven days against journeymen shouldn’t prove a problem.
“I’m over the moon with the fight dates. I can’t wait to fight!”
“Two fights in a week is nothing new to me. It’s something I am well used to from the amateur days, so bring ’em on!” Sheehan told Irish-boxing.com before revealing the plan Peter Fury has set out for him.
“Peter has a plan laid out for me. The idea is to get a couple of fights in this year then really step it up next year. I can’t wait for that.”
Sheehan has moved to Team Fury in Bolton and, as a result, has been regularly sparring with former Irish champion and current heavyweight champion of the World, Tyson Fury.
Discussing the sparring Sheehan commented how “sparring Tyson is great and frustrating at the same time. He is a huge man that can move, box and fight very well too.”
