Eighth fighter added to Celtic Clash 2 card

An eighth fighter has been confirmed for the upcoming ‘Celtic Clash 2‘ card.

The National Stadium in Dublin will play host to ‘The Rising’ show on Saturday May 27th, and the bumper bill has been bolstered by the addition of Cork middleweight Vladimir Belujsky [0-0-1].

‘The Slovak Rebel’ debuted earlier this month in London but was held to a draw by the game Anthony Fox at the Connaught Rooms. The Assassin Boxing fighter will now look to kick off his career on his Irish debut in eight weeks time.

Belujsky joins Eric Donovan, Sean Creagh, Stephen Carroll, Crank Whitehouse, Lynn Harvey, and debutants John Joyce and Regan Buckley on the packed bill.

Many more boxers are still expected to be announced soon for the card, which promises to be one of the biggest, in terms of number of fighters, in recent years.

Tickets for Celtic Clash 2 will be priced at €15 (Under 15s), €30, €40, €45, and €55 (Premium), and will be available from the boxers involved in the near future.
