‘Does he Still Want it?’ Murphy Tells Gaynor to Get in Touch if he Wants to Get it On

Colm Murphy has told Liam Gaynor to get in touch if he wants to get it on.

Murphy claimed the BUI feather title in just his fifth fight when he defeated Ruadhan Farrell at the SSE Arena on the ‘Return of the Mick’ card last month and is ready to go straight back into domestic action if required.

That Murphy-Farrell bout was one that captured widespread attention but Gaynor’s gaze wasn’t fixed on the clash solely for the purposes of entertainment, the Tallaght fighter revealed he was eyeing up the winner.

The keen to step up Bolton based fighter told Irish-boxing.com he could see Murphy ‘struggling’ with his style if a fight was confirmed.

It wasn’t quite a call out but it did put the idea of a fight in Murphy’s head and he told Gaynor he can have it if he wants it.

“I saw the article you had up with Liam Gaynor saying he wanted a match up with the winner for the title. Does he still want it? I’m sure if his management got in touch with Mark [Dunlop] we can set up another domestic dust-up.”

The BUI title usually comes with Irish title mandatory status meaning Murphy and Gaynor, if the BUI deemed him Irish title worthy, could fight for the Irish strap.

Murphy reveals the Irish title has been mentioned by MHD boss Dunlop but he is ok with defending the Celtic title for the time being.

“I’m not sure of the details for an Irish title. I know Mark has thought about and looked into getting me that belt but I would love to defend my belt first if possible. Mark makes the calls and I know I’m in good hands.”
