‘Prettyboy’ and ‘Triple O’ were due to trade leather for the 147lbs title in what had grown into a massively anticipated domestic title fight on the MHD card at Girdwood Community Hub tomorrow.
However, the Boxing Union of Ireland officially cancelled the fight this afternoon.
The BUI revealed O’Neill failed to make weight coming in 10lbs over the limit at 157lbs, Geraghty made weight and was just under a pound under the limit.
The Irish Welterweight title fight scheduled for tomorrow night is now OFF. @deco_geraghty weighed in at 146.4lbs but shockingly Owen O'Neill weighed in at 157.8lbs. It's a sickening blow for Declan and his team. @BoxingTicketsNI @Irishboxingcom— BoxingUnionOfIreland (@boxingunionIRL) October 13, 2023
