Final addition made to Red Corner February show

The bill has been finalised for the February 25th Red Corner Promotions show at the National Stadium in Dublin, with an eleventh fighter being confirmed for the card.

Castleknock light heavyweight Stevie Collins [9(4)-0-1] has this morning been announced for the bumper ‘Unfinished Business’ card at the home of Irish boxing.

The Dubliner was due to co-headline the previous Red Corner show back in November, their debut effort, but was forced out his BUI Celtic title fight with Welshman Nathan King by a shoulder injury sustained in sparring.

Thankfully the Celtic Warriors Gym man has made a speedy recovery from an injury that initially seemed quite severe, and will make his National Stadium debut in just over five weeks time.

Red Corner said that “we can’t wait to see Stevie involved and hope this is his first of many appearances as together we set out on an Irish boxing Renaissance.”

The eleven-fight bill in full comprises of headliner Luke Keeler along with Collins Jr, Craig O’Brien, Jake Hanney, Chris Blaney, Lynn Harvey, Noely Murphy, Eric Donovan, Connor Coyle, Allan Phelan, and Jay Byrne.

Opponents for the bill are expected to be announced in the coming days and weeks.
