Aaron McKenna competes in the first Irish fight of the year in Liverpool tonight.
The Monaghan middleweight is in late replacement action, fighting former Padraig McCrory foe Mickey Ellison on the Boxxer card.
The 24-year-old was to start his year with an eagerly anticipated clash with Linus Udofia on the undercard of Natasha Jonas’ world title fight with Mikaela Mayer but fights the Blackburn native after the Luton man pulled out with injury.
The world title card will be broadcast on Sky Sports Arena. Sky Sports Main Event will also broadcast from 8pm.
There will be a free stream available on Sky Sports’ social media platforms and website from 5pm on Saturday.
McKenna versus Ellison opens the televised portion of the bill at 7pm.
