New Belfast show announced as 2017 looks set to end with a bang


Another show has been announced for Ireland that will ensure a bumper end to a brilliant year of boxing on the island.

This evening it has been confirmed that Mark Ginley will run his third show of the year on Friday December 1st.

The young promoter will return to Devenish Complex in Belfast, the scene of his first two shows – Dust Up at The Devenish and Danger at The Devenish, which were headlined by Anto Upton and Tyrone McCullagh respectively.

The previous two Ginley Promotions shows have been comprised entirely of fighters managed by Mack The Knife Global.

Ginley is anticipating his biggest show yet and is ready to introduce title fights and domestic matches to his offerings.

He outlined how “December 1st is set to be our biggest and best to date and we are delighted to return to Belfast.”

“We look forward to revealing the lineup over the next few days and boxing fans can expect championship action from the Devenish.”

“It’s set to be another excellent night of action in Belfast and we believe this will be a fantastic event. The Devenish is the perfect venue and we are delighted to return for our third consecutive event. We will also be working with the BBBoC and the BUI to hopefully bring some title fights and domestic fights to the small hall scene. ”

The announcement means that the weekend will feature two pro shows, with ‘Celtic Clash 4’ taking place the following night [December 2nd] at the National Stadium in Dublin
