McCrory to get Dublin exposure ahead of possible McAfee Irish title fight

Dublin fight fans will get to take in the all action style of Feargal McCrory in the flesh for the first time on October 6.

The all action super featherweight fights outside Belfast for the first time since he turned over in 2015 on the Rise Again card set for the National Basketball Arena.

‘Fearless’ has impressed with an entertaining style in the majority of his eight fights to date and both he and his loyal fan base are a welcome addition to an already stacked Dublin card.

The John Breen trained 26 year old caught the eye of Eddie Hearn last year and looked set to join the likes of Paul Hyland and James Tennyson as part of the TV supporting cast for Ryan Burnett’s Belfast fight nights.

However, with no home fight officially announced for one of three reigning Irish world champions, McCrory has had to extend his unbeaten run on small hall cards.

There was rumour of interest from America, but with nothing yet to materalise on that front it’s Tallaght and the Rise Again for the well supported Coal Island puncher next.

A fight in Dublin could also prove the perfect precussor to a potential Irish title fight with Stephen McAfee.

The BUI have ratified a fight between the pair for the green strap claiming it should take place on November 24.

There has been no official announcement with regard to that clash and it’s believed that much like Carl McDonald and Dylan McDonagh a deal has yet to be done.

However, fight fans remain hopeful an agreement can be reached and if exposure to the Dublin fight fraternity can only make the clash bigger.

McCrory joins fellow MHD puncher Paul Hyland Jr on the Assassin Promotions card as well as the likes of Allan Phelan, Thomas Finnegan, Cillian Reardon, JJ McDonagh, Craig McCarthy, Owen Duffy, John Joyce, Johnny Corcoran, Francy Luzoho, Martin Wall, Eddie Tracey, Dylan Moran, Lynn Harvey, Vlad Belujsky and Nick Quigley.
