Kildare former amateur star Eric Donovan [1(0)-0] has been handed a second professional fight date.

Lilywhite Lightning, who impressed during the Summer as an RTÉ Olympic pundit, will again return to the National Stadium for the Red Corner Promotions ‘Inception’ show on Saturday November 5th.

The 2010 European bronze medalist debuted in June with an impressive points win over Damian Lawniczak.

Joining the 31 year old super feather on the card are Celtic Warriors quartet Steve Collins Jr, Lynn Harvey, Niall Kennedy, and Luke Keeler, Breen Team duo Feargal McCrory and Ruairi Dalton, as well as Balbriggan’s Crank Whitehouse.

November 5th promises to be a huge night for Irish boxing, with a massive Boxnation show also taking place at the Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast.
