A third Irish date has been confirmed for next month.

The fourth and fifth shows of 2016 both take place on Saturday November 5th with Red Corner running a card at the National Stadium in Dublin while the Boxnation cameras will be coming to the Titanic Exhibition Centre.

Now the postponed Prospect Boxing/Alio Wilton show has been officially refixed for Saturday November 26th at the Short Sports and Social Club near George Best Airport in Belfast City.

Dublin light welter Stephen Carroll, fresh from his first knockout win at the weekend, will look to move to 5-0 as well as gain title eligibility when he fights in an eight rounder on the card.

Belfast flyweight Luke Wilton [16(7)-5(1)-1] will make his return to the ring following his British title eliminator loss to Charlie Edwards in February.

There is also a ‘home’ appearance for Bangor light middleweight journeyman Casey Blair [3(0)-16(3)] who will be hoping to grab a win on the card.

Balbriggan welter Crank Whitehouse, all going well on November 5th when he appears on the Red Corner Dublin show, will also feature.

20 year old Belfast banger Mathew Fitzsimons [2(2)-0] will make his long-awaited return to the ring on the card. The 6″2′ super featherweight will be in four-round action.

Opponents for the show, and some possible further additions, will be announced in due course.
