Vladimir Belujsky [7(5)-3(1)-1] and Dylan Moran [10(5)-1(1)] will both look to return to winning ways in London next month.

The Cork Slovak and the Waterford welter will both appear at York Hall on November 29th.

The pair will face yet to be confirmed opponents at the iconic venue after, according to Slater Sports, they saw domestic fights fall through.

Irish-boxing.com believes ‘The Real Deal’ had agreed to fight Monaghan’s Larry Fryers in a bid to get his career back on track.

However, issues with regard to what weight the fight would play out meant ‘Lethal’ Larry will now face a different opponent in America on a show run by Moran’s promoters Star Boxing.

So, November 29th becomes an important date for the Deise puncher. Moran has endured a difficult time after seeing his duck egg broken by Dennis Okoth in a high profile American debut.

The 24-year-old was keen to bounce back quickly and had two quick fire dates lined up in a bid to put some distance between himself and the reverse.

However, his planned Mexican fight was cancelled minutes after he got gloved up to fight. A fight a month later scheduled for Belfast then fell by the wayside as the entire ‘He Who Dares’ card was cancelled.

Moran was hoping two quickfire wins would then tee him up for a pre Christmas notable American return. However, it’s next stop London for the welterweight.

Belujsky has been busy this year fighting three times already with two of the fights being relatively meaningful.

He threatened to cause a scare in a late notice bout with former Commonwealth title challenger David Brophy, before registering victory in Cork.

Earlier this month he was stopped by Ukrainian prospect Petro Ivanov in the WBC youth title fight.

The 24-year-old, ‘Slovak Rebel’ will no look to finish an active year on a winning note at York Hall.
