Refresh to see live updates:

10:02pm: Thank you for following our undercard updates. Stay tuned for our full fight report for Eric Donovan’s EU title fight.

10:01pm: 78-74 to Tommy McCarthy! The Mac Attack will now move onto a big fight.

Round 2-8: It hasn’t been the best fight to watch here. Scrappy stuff and Porozovs is making things difficult. The quality of McCarthy should shine through on the scorecards, though.

Round 1: Cagey to start in the opener. McCarthy going through the motions.

9:27pm: Tommy McCarthy up now in a cruiserweight eight rounder v Reineis Porozovs.

9:23pm: Wow, what a win for Owen Duffy. The King of Cavan.

Round 5: KO Owen Duffy! A left hook to the body sends Donegan down for the count. What a comeback from The Butcher. Incredible stuff.

Round 4: Duffy is on fire and is putting it up to Donegan, backing him up to the ropes and hurting him. This could go either way.

Round 3: Fantastic comeback from Duffy who puts it on Donegan in the third. Brilliant comeback round from the Shercock southpaw as the pair trade shots.

Round 2: A fire alarm forces an early pause but we’re quickly back underway and DONEGAN DROPS DUFFY! Short right hook. Wow!

Round 1: Close to start. Donegan lands a couple of heavy shots early and is looking loose but Duffy grows into the round well. Close first three minutes.

8:49pm: It’s the Cavan Clash – the Battle of Breffni – Dominic Donegan v Owen Duffy – 8 Rounds at Light Middleweight

8:41pm: 60-52 – Owen O’Neill gets the win and improves to 9-0, Not just a ticket-seller!

Round 6: Both tired, Owen O’Neill continues to roll forward as Laskowski looks to counter-punch. Furious finish, Triple O really entertained the Cliftonville fans there.

Round 5: Laskowski comes out aggressively but O’Neill is the physically stronger fighter and can deal with it. Every round is close but the Belfast man is edging them all.

Round 4: O’Neill has Laskowski buzzed at the start of the fourth and piles on the pressure, sending Laskowski briefly to the canvas, but the Pole is too crafty – so crafty, in fact, he gets docked a point for continued dark arts.

Round 3: Scrappy in the third. O’Neill the aggressor but it’s close.

Round 2: Good work from O’Neill in the second but he is being pushed here by the former Scottish champion.

Round 1: Owen O’Neill on the attack to start and he takes the first round. Laskowski looks comfortable, though.

8:07pm: No time to dwell on that result, Owen O’Neill is up next versus former Scottish champ Marek Laskowski in a welterweight six-rounder.

8:02pm: Shock! Eamonn Magill scores it 39-39. A draw! Conor Quinn’s record now reads 2(2)-0-1. Wow.

Round 4: Martinez goes on the attack in the final round but Quinn is too cute to get drawn into anything. The Central American may have taken that round but it should be a win for the Belfast boxer.

Round 3: Quinn is too sharp for Martinez, catching him with the jab at every opportunity. The visitor has some success in the closing seconds of the round but it’s not enough.

Round 2: Quinn taking centre ring and spearing out straight shots to keep Martinez at bay. The Nicaraguan power-puncher isn’t getting the opportunities to let off his big shots. Good round for the Irishman.

Round 1: Conor Quinn picking some nice punches but Martinez looks dangerous here. Close fight.

7:45pm: Big fight for Conor Quinn here. Martinez is in Belfast to win and the Belfast kid has not fought in a long time. Will need to be switched on.

7:40pm: Here we go! Conor Quinn fights Darwin Martinez in a bantamweight four-rounder to start us off!
