Irish-boxing.com can reveal that James Moore is hoping to be in action twice in the space of the next four months.
The 30-year-old light-middleweight bounced back from the first defeat of his professional career, a controversial points defeat by Gabriel Rosado in June, with an impressive win over Lloyd Joseph in New York on Wednesday night.
Celtic Gloves are now hoping to arrange a fight for the Wicklow native in Ireland in September, in what would be his first appearance on home soil since his knockout win over Salaheddine Sarhani at the National Stadium in June, 2006.
The target then for Moore will be a fight on the undercard of Joe Calzaghe’s light-heavyweight showdown with Roy Jones Jr. at New York’s Madison Square Garden on November.
It seems that it is very much a case of onwards and upwards for the highly-rated Arklow man.
