Date change for upcoming Belfast show

There has been a change of date for one of the many, many upcoming shows in Belfast – and it will lead to an extremely busy weekend of boxing.

The Team Alio/Prospect Boxing show that was initially announced for Saturday March 11th has been brought forward a week to Saturday March 4th.

A venue has also been confirmed for the show – The Shorts Sports and Social Club. The atmospheric Belfast venue on the Hollywood was used for Wilton’s comeback card back in November.

The card will feature brothers Luke Wilton [16(7)-5(1)-1], Matt Wilton [14(3)-0], Casey Blair [4(0)-21(3)] Tony Nellins [3(0)-0], Ryan Greene [6(1)-1(1)], and Ryan Peake [1(1)-0].

In addition, the David Haye v Tony Bellew pay-per-view will be screened at the venue.

The date change means that pro shows will be ran in the city on consecutive days, with the Ginley Promotions debut card taking place on Friday March 3rd at the Devenish Venue.

The packed schedule of confirmed shows in Ireland now reads:
Saturday February 4th – Europa Hotel, Belfast – MHD Promotions
Saturday February 18th – Waterfront Hall, Belfast – Queensberry Promotions
Saturday February 25th – National Stadium, Dublin – Red Corner Promotions ‘Unfinished Business’
Friday March 3rd – Devenish Complex, Belfast – Ginley Promotions
Saturday March 4th – Shorts Sports and Social Club, Belfast – Team Wilton and Prospect Boxing
Saturday April 1st – National Stadium, Dublin – It’s A Bout Boxing Ireland ‘Táimid Laochra’
Saturday April 22nd – Devenish Complex, Belfast – Kieran Farrell BEM Promotions ‘A New Era’

Tickets for the fight night cost £30, and can be bought from the boxers involved on the card.
