Paddy Hyland has guaranteed Team Hyland’s American adventure will turn up world title gold.
Hyland predicts his son’s link up with Team Snooki Boxing will ensure they live the American dream and make it to the top of the world boxing pile.
Speaking at the press conference to officially announce ‘The Irish Invasion’ January 28 card, father and mentor of the three Irish boxing champions, Hyland promised his sons would light up Atlantic City.
Fittingly as the head of the family with the most decorated mantle piece in Irish boxing Paddy Hyland snr also took time to highlight the family atmosphere in the Hyland’s new set up.
“The Hyland brothers will light up Atlantic City at the end of this month. They have done it all over Europe-Ireland, England and even Ukraine before and they will do it again in Atlantic city. We are here to win world titles and I can guarantee Team Hyland will win a title in America,” predicted the Golden Cobra boss.
“It’s a family affair out here. Team Snooki and Team Hyland are one big family. We want to thank Nicole, Andy and Final Round Promotions for this opportunity.”
Meanwhile Rafael Lora (11-7-0) has been confirmed as the opponent for the youngest of the three fighting brothers.
The featherweight started his career well but lost seven in a row when he moved up in standard.
“I am looking forward to fighting and supporting my brother on what will be a great show,” Paulie Hyland explained.
