Feargal McCrory opponent named for October Europa show

Top Pro Gif Ad
Feargal McCrory will look to continue building his pro ledger on Saturday October 8th at the Europa Hotel in Belfast.

The Tyrone lightweight appears on the Mark Dunlop-promoted dinner show and will again face journeyman opposition over four rounds in what is just his third pro fight.

The John Breen-trained fighter has eyes on the bill-topper Paul Hyland Jr, but some argue that the 24 year old southpaw needs to improve his record and up his roundage before considering bigger fights.

Facing him in October will be 32 year old Southampton boxer Billy Parker [2(0)-3(0)], who has had a busy last 12 months since turning over in late 2015 and recently went the full six rounds with 7-0-1 Norwich fighter Zaiphan Morris.

Before facing McCrory, the Englishman has a clash with Bilal Rehman [4(1)-0] on the upcoming Kieran Farrell-promoted show at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester on September 2nd.

Alongside McCrory and headliner Hyland, there are further fights on the Europa dinner show for Dubliners Jake Hanney and Jay Byrne, as well as Derry’s Tyrone McCullagh and Scotland’s Ronnie Clark.
