Bray middleweight Eddie Treacy becomes the latest fighter to ditch the vest in what has been a remarkable 2017.
National Novice 75kg champion earlier this year, Treacy has also boxed and won twice on the Irish semi-pro scene, and brings an aggressive all-action style to the pros.
Having fought out of St Teresa’s as an amateur, Treacy will remain with coach Mark Buckley and becomes part of a growing scene in Wicklow which also includes stablemates Regan Buckley and James Cahill.
By our count, Treacy becomes the 43rd boxer to turn pro in Ireland this year – although he and another five of these are still to debut.
Treacy intends to make his bow early in the new year as the Irish boxing resurgence continues.
