New U.S. date for Niall Kennedy

Niall Kennedy [4(2)-0] will fight in America for a third time next month.

The well-supported Garda, a distant relation of John F Kennedy, has proven to be popular on recent Murphy’s Boxing’s shows and will get to strut his stuff again in Plymouth, Massachuestes.

‘Boom Boom Baz,’ who has scored two knockouts on his previous visits to the States, will share a card with Celtic Warrior gym-mates Spike O’Sullivan and Luke Keeler at the end of July.

The Wexford heavyweight had recently been helping Tommy McCarthy prepare for his British title eliminator win of Jon-Lewis Dickinson.
