Forget letting it build, two Irish prospects are ready to go to war in the fledgling stage of their careers.
At a time were most are learning their trade against journeyman opposition, something many promoters, trainers and managers will argue is the right thing to do, novice pros Regan Buckley and Carl McDonald have agreed to trade leather.
The new to the pro scene duo will battle out over six rounds on the Celtic Clash 3-: Building Champions card in the National Stadium on September 9th
Considering it’s only McDonald’s third pro outing and Buckley’s second it’s an unusual pairing in terms of all Irish fights, but it will certainly see both fighters’ profiles raise.
There will be those who will claim the match up has been made too early, yet while there is a risk element involved it’s not as high as some people make out and the reward for the winner is substantial.
With so many Irish fighters with pro boxing licenses at present this is the kind of exciting clash we could see a lot more of in the coming years.
Speaking to Irish-Boxing.com Stephen Sharpe of Boxing Ireland Promotions explained.
