Peter McDonagh involved in heated clash at Parker-Fury undercard presss conference

Peter McDonagh [27(3)-28(2)-1] had to be held back from his upcoming opponent today.

The Galway welterweight fights Shayne Singleton [23(8)-2(2)-1] on the Joseph Parker v Hughie Fury undercard at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night, live on YouTube, and almost came to blows with the Englishman today.

The pair were at the undercard press conference, and things heated up when the two went face-to-face. Three-weight Irish champ McDonagh pushed his head in, which infuriated recent British title challenger Singleton and led to a prolonged shouting match between the two fighters.

McDonagh has not fought since last year, but the 39 year old journeyman turned Cinderella man has been in camp alongside Fury in Bolton under coach Peter Fury.

Watch Peter McDonagh and Shayne Singleton go head-to-head below:
