First 5 fighters confirmed for Ginley Promotions debut show

Promotional newcomer Mark Ginley has announced the first five fighters that will appear on his debut show in just over five weeks time.

Ginley Promotions will run their first card on Friday March 3rd at the Devenish Complex in Belfast, and a very strong spine to the card has been confirmed.

Five fighters managed by MTK Global will appear on the bill along with more to be announced in the coming days

Confirmed for the card so far are:

– Title-chasing Dublin lightweight Steven Ormond [23(12)-3(0)].
– Talented Belfast middleweight Alfredo Meli [12(3)-0-1].
– Derry super bantamweight prospect Tyrone McCullagh [5(4)-0].
– Crowd pleasing Belfast feather Ciaran McVarnock [6(1)-0-1] who will be making a long-awaited return to the ring in his home city
– Belfast light welter and former BBBoC English champion Anto Upton [13(5)-1(0)].

It is a very strong start from Ginley, indeed it is one of the strongest-looking small hall shows of recent times.

Tickets for the card will go on sale early next week and are priced at £35 (General) and £65 (VIP Ringside).

Tickets are available directly from Ginley Promotions or from any of the boxers on the bill.
