There are three Irish fighters in action in Britain tonight.

John Joe Nevin takes to the ring in York Hall in his first title fight, while Paddy Donovan and Pierce O’Leary both trade leather in Glasgow.

Mullingar super feather Nevin boxes Freddy Fonseca for the WBA International title on a Hennessy Sports bill while Limerick welter Donovan and Dublin light welter both have their second professional bouts.

All three fights will be available to watch for Irish fans.

Nevin’s bout is the chief support to Alex Dilmaghani v Francisco Fonseca and will open the broadcast on Channel 5 just after 9:00pm.
Before Nevin takes to the ring one can watch two of Ireland’s hottest prospects.
Donovan is due in the ring at the Emirates Arena at 8:00pm, facing Danny Mendoza over six rounds.
Immediately following this fight, O’Leary is in versus tricky Englishman Chris Adaway over four.

These bouts will be streamed live on YouTube on the iFL TV channel which is showing the entire Umar Farooq v Lee McGregor card.
