Assassin Promotions run their inaugural card at the National Basketball Arena on Saturday October 6th and have tonight confirmed a cracking match-up for the main part of the ‘Rise Again’ card.
Cork super middleweight Vladimir Belujsky [5(5)-1(0)-1] will take on Liverpool’s Nick Quigley [15(3)-4(2)] over eight rounds in what looks to be a guaranteed war between two all-action fighters – pitting notable power against relentless workrate.
‘The Slovak Rebel’ Belujsky had, earlier this week, contacted Irish-Boxing.com to express his frustration at his fellow pros for refusing offers to fight him and the 22-year-old has been rewarded with a big fight within a matter of days.
Quigley, a Prizefighter runner-up and English title challenger will be more than familiar to Irish fans following his exciting fire-fight loss to Spike O’Sullivan last September. Following this he entered Ireland’s Last Man Standing in March where he was eliminated in the quarter-finals by eventual runner-up Jack Cullen – with Belujsky being eliminated by winner Roy Sheahan on the other side of the draw.
With 29-year-old Quigley’s grandfather hailing from Wexford, it is hoped that the fight will be sanctioned for the BUI Celtic title – with Assassin currently in the process of securing this status.
The card in seven weeks time will feature further domestic match-ups and also boasts an undercard which includes Allan Phelan, Thomas Finnegan, Cillian Reardon, JJ McDonagh, Craig McCarthy, Owen Duffy, John Joyce, Johnny Corcoran, and debutant Francy Luzoho.
