Return of the Quinn – Mighty Martin to give it a lash

Dublin lightweight Martin Quinn [3(1)-1(0)] has got the band back together and will make a charge at the domestic boxing scene as soon as is allowable.

The 32-year-old has not fought since win over Francy Luzoho on the Clash of the Titans card in Dublin in March 2019 and had threatened to fade into boxing no-man’s land since then.

However, Quinn has redoubled his efforts, linked up with legendary Crumlin boss Phil Sutcliffe Sr, and has signed a new three-year deal with Boxing Ireland Promotions as his seeks big fights at home.

The always-entertaining scrapper has packed plenty into his career already on the Celtic Clash circuit, from a war with Iago Barros to big domestics with Karl Kelly and Luzoho.

Quinn had been in line to face Stephen Webb in Belfast but this bout last October fell through due to a nose injury to the Ulsterman.

‘Mighty’ Martin’s main targets currently are managerial stablemate Joe Fitzpatrick [10(7)-1(0)] and Star Boxing’s Victor Rabei [10(3)-0].

However, beyond this, there remains a bubbling scene of fighters, any of whom would lend themselves to good fights with Quinn. These include the likes of the aforementioned Luzoho [1(1)-1(0)] and Webb [1(0)-1(1)], and new pro Aaron O’Reilly [0-1(0)]
