The Coalisland lightweight was initially due to face Billy Parker at the Europa Hotel, but the Southampton slugger has been forced off the card due to a medical suspension mandated following a knockout loss in his last fight to Bilal Rehman.
In his place, Bulgarian Ivailo Boyanov [2(0)-5(3)-1] has been drafted in for the four round bout. Boyanov may be known to some as the debut opponent of Connor Benn, where he was stopped within a round. However, the light welterweight has also this year upset English prospect Andrew Joicey and is not one to be underestimated.
The Paul Hyland-headlined dinner show also features undercard support from Scotland’s Ronnie Clark, Derry man Tyrone McCullagh, and the Dublin trio of Ian Tims, Jay Byrne, and debutant Carl McDonald.
