Dean Byrne to fight on Sky Matchroom show next month

Dean Byrne [17(6)-6(2)-2] will fight on a massive Matchroom show next month.

‘Irish Lightning’ is to appear on the ‘All of the Lights’ card at the Sheffield Arena on March 26th and headlined by Kell Brook.

Former Wildcard fighter Byrne will take on ‘The Ginger Rocket’ Jamie Robinson [6(2)-3(0)-1].

The bout offers light welterweight Byrne the chance to claim a scalp over the Dave Coldwell-trained 24 year old and reinvigorate his career.

Byrne last fought in a competitive points loss to Peter McDonagh for the Irish light welterweight title in November.

In the headline bout, Brook takes on unheralded American Kevin Bizier. There is further undercard support from Tyrone Nurse v Willie Limond, David Allen v Richard Towers, Luke Campbell v Gary Sykes, Andy Townend v Craig Poxton, as well as appearances from Adam Etches, Jordan Gill, Lee Appleyard, and Leigh Wood.
