How to Watch Eric Donovan’s EU title fight – Running Order – Times
Irish professional boxing makes a return to terrestrial television on Saturday night.
TG4 will air a pro show to Irish television viewers for the first time since March of 2019 when the Irish language station broadcast a fight topped by and Eric Donovan [15(8)-2(2)] and Stephen McAfee Irish title fight.
Kildare’s Donovan is also the main event for Saturday’s card, which will be broadcast from the Europa Hotel, Belfast.
The 37-year-old fights former French Champion Khalil El Hadri [13(7)-1(0)] for the vacant and prestigious EBU EU title on the MHD Promotions card.
Four other fights will be broadcast on the card including an interesting Latvian test of sorts for former European cruiserweight champion Tommy McCarthy.
Conor Quinn fights for the first time since February 2020 when he takes on aggressive and dangerous Nicuageran Darwin Martinez.
Owen O’Neill trades leather, not against Martin Quinn as initially expected, but faces a somewhat under-the-radar test against Marek Laskowski, while Owen Duffy and Dominic Donegan face off in the eagerly anticipated Clash of Cavan.
The broadcast begins at 7:30pm Irish time and is available to view on television and live around the world via TG4 Player.
The Running Order [subject to change] is as follows:
Conor Quinn versus Martinez 4×3
Owen O’Neill versus Marek Laskowski 6×3
Owen Duffy versus Dominic Donegan 6×3
Tommy McCarthy versus Reinis Porosovs 8×3
Eric Donovan versus Khali El Hadri 12×3
Providing punditry on the night will be recent world title challenger and Olympic medal winner Michael Conlan and his Top Rank stablemates Paddy Donovan and Kieran Molloy.
National Elite Championship finalist Antoine “Toto” Ó Gríofa will provide co-coms.
