The FIFTEENTH Irish show of the year, and fifth of which for Dublin, has been this evening confirmed.

Red Corner Promotions today announced that they will run their third show of the year this coming October.

The fight night will take place on Saturday October 7th, the night after a Kieran Farrell Promotions bill in Belfast, and they will again return to the National Stadium on Dublin’s South Circular Road.

The young outfit stated that “this show will be a represent a coming of age for many fighters with some top fights to be announced.”

At present Castleknock light heavy Stevie Collins [10(4)-1(0)-1] is the only fighter confirmed for the bill which will look to build on two stellar shows so far this year.

In February, on ‘Unfinished Business,’ Luke Keeler defeated Englishman Lewis Taylor, while Collins, Craig O’Brien, Noely Murphy, and Jay Byrne claimed competitive wins over Pablo Sosa, Jorge Vallejo, Avelino Vazquez, and Sergio Abad respectively.

Last month their ‘For Honour and Pride’ card was topped by two Irish title fights, with Keeler defeating Darren Cruise and Collins falling to Paddy McDonagh. On the undercard O’Brien overcame Christian Gomez, Chris Blaney and Ray Moylette beat Darryl Sharp and Innocent Anyanwu respectively, and Victor Rabei made an impressive debut against Chris Adaway

Ticket details for the as yet untitled bill will be announced shortly
