John Duddy auditioning for the part as Emmett Brennan’s trainer
Emmett Brennan has gone directly to the main character to help him in his bid to recreate the John Duddy story.
Although it’s yet to be officially announced it’s pretty obvious the Olympian has ditched the vest and will enter the pro ranks this year.
Brennan has been vocal about wanting a slot on the Katie Taylor- Amanda Serrano undercard and has revealed he will relocate to New York where he wants to tap into the Irish American market.
It’s something Duddy did to great success in the first decade of this century. The exciting Derry middleweight lived in the city and captured the hearts of its fight fans to develop a famous following.
