After over three years out of the ring, Feargal McCrory [11(5)-0] is back.
The Coalisland super featherweight has relocated to New York and will finally fight again TONIGHT.
McCrory will box on a ‘One For All Promotions’ card that also includes Mathew Gonzalez, Melissa St. Vil and Giovanni Scuderi
The 30-year-old faces Texan Cesar Afredo Cantu [3(1)-4(0)-1]in a scheduled six-rounder at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, located at 317 Clermont Ave. in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
The fight will be broadcast on BXNG TV, which can be accessed HERE.
McCrory is third on the card so is expected to be in the ring at 1:30AM Irish time.
The Tyrone southpaw moved to America in the wake of his Irish lightweight title win over Karl Kelly back in 2019.
There were whispers of a Top Rank deal but the pandemic intervened, cancelling McCrory’s appearance on a Mick Conlan undercard at Madison Square Garden and he would move from training with Andre Rozier to Derry legend John Duddy.
After a nightmarish three years, he now has an opportunity to kickstart his career and is hungry to do just that.
“I’m realistic. I’ve just turned 30, I’ve been inactive a long time but let’s see where it goes.
“I’ve always been hungry. It’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to do and it’s the only thing I’ve ever really excelled at,” he adds before revealing has kept working throughout his layoff even if social media didn’t suggest as much.
“I just can’t wait to go. I’m working hard. I’m not one of these people who blows it all over social media how hard they’re working.
“I’m a professional boxer, it’s what we’re supposed to do. People will make judgement and see how hard I work when I fight.”
