Return to the ring confirmed for Lynn Harvey

A return to the ring has been confirmed for Dublin puncher Lynn Harvey [1(1)-1(0)].

The Kilbarrack KO-artist has been added to the MHD Promotions ‘Inquisition’ dinner show at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on Saturday February 4th.

Harvey suffered defeat in her last bout in Dublin in November, being outpointed over six by the vastly bigger Mary Romero.

The brave defeat, which won Harvey much respect, also saw ‘The Hunter’ implement some changes for her career. The 35 year old has left Daniel O’Sullivan to join up with Dublin trainer Tommy McCormack, while a move down to light flyweight is also on the cards.

Harvey will return over four two-minute rounds against an opponent to-be-confirmed.

The card will be headlined by Belfast fan-favourite Paul Hyland Jr with additional support from local lightweight Joe Fitzpatrick, Tyrone’s Feargal McCrory, Dubliner Jay Byrne, and Scotsman Ronnie Clark.
