Declan Geraghty vs Archie Sharp – WHAT TIME & HOW TO WATCH

Tonight is a massive night in the career of Declan Geraghty.

The Dublin super-featherweight all but fights to keep his hopes of big time career alive, going in the away corner as a major underdog versus rising Englishman Archie Sharpe.

Having fallen short in three step-up fights versus Irish opposition, ‘Pretty Boy’ returns to the limelight in a significant fight on a big Queensbury show desperate to win.

With so much at stake Irish fight fans are keen to tune in, indeed the build up this week has helped to make it the most eagerly anticipated clash on the card.

To watch the fight you need to have a subscription and tune into BT Sport 1.

First bell for the show at Royal Albert Hall is 18:30 while TV coverage starts at 7:30pm.

Geraghty and Sharp will play chief support and as a result are expected to be in the ring around 9:30pm.
