Down Under Debut Delay for Conor Wallace


Conor Wallace will have to wait a little bit longer before he makes his professional debut.

The Newry light heavyweight has turned pro in Australia and was due to debut this Saturday in Bendigo.

Having signed with Steve Deller’s Eureka Promotions, Wallace was set to feature on a big card at the Bendigo Stadium.

Here, on an ESPN+ card headlined by a super flyweight clash between Andrew Moloney and Luis Concepcion, he was due to face experienced Indonesian Aswin Cabuy [19(7)-71(33)-4] over four rounds.

However, the Asian who has previously gone the distance with Irish light middleweights Dennis Hogan and Tony Senior, has pulled out of the fight having been defeated at the weekend.

No replacement has been sourced and 22-year-old Wallace will instead make his debut on what was meant to be fight date number two.

This comes in just a few weeks time – on Saturday September 22nd – at The Famous Fortitude Gym in Newstead.

Wallace will now make his bow versus Sierra Leone super middleweight Aaron Sesay [1(1)-4(2)].

The ‘Heavy Fire’ card plays out in the adopted hometown of Wallace and is promoted by Eureka. Also featuring will be Joshua Jenkins, Michael Bagley, Liam Wilson, and Aaron Russell.
