Golden Contract running order

There is significant Irish interest in what promises to be an exciting night of Golden Contract action.

Four of the eight fighters hoping to win a six-figure five-fight deal with a big promoter – rumoured to be Top Rank – will be no more as the featherweight quarter finals get underway.

Derry’s Tyrone McCullagh and Westmeath’s Davey Oliver Joyce are hoping to book their places in the semi finals with victory at York Hall tonight.

‘DOJ’ is in one of the more intriguing fights of the the night as he faces Commonwealth title holder Leigh Wood at the top of the bill, whilst ‘White Chocolate’ opens the Sky Sports TV coverage against late replacement Razaq Najib.

The show will be broadcast on Sky Sports and ESPN+ and the entire undercard can be watched on IFL TV.
