Fitzgerald wants winner of Clash of the Clans bill topper

The call out king of Irish boxing is at it again- and has set his sights on the winner of the Clash of the Clans top of the bill.

‘The Pride’, who also appears on the February 5 National Stadium show, wants whoever emerges from the Gary Corcoran versus Danny Butler clash with the WBO Intercontinental light middleweight title.

The 30 year old Dublin fighter, who fights novice Sam Wall early next month, was hoping to step in and take top billing in his home town when Joe Selkirk had to pull out of the clash, but the WBO wouldn’t ratify the clash as Fitzgerald suffered defeat in September.

That hasn’t stopped ‘Fitzy’ targeting the belt and calling for a bout with the winner to be made at a future date.

“Obviously I have to get this fight out of the way first, but I was to box Corcoran or Selkirk for the WBO title. The WBO wouldn’t give the fight the go ahead because I lost my last fight, but I hope to get the winner of Corcoran versus Butler,” he told Irish-boxing.com.

“I am just back training with Phil (Sutcliffe), but I don’t think I need a few fights before getting a big fight. Training with Phil is like riding a bike once your back in the gym you know what to do and what is expected of you. I want the winner next and  Mgm want to get me the WBO intercontinetal title for me so hopefully it can be made quick.”
