Round Zero: Stephen McAfee v Colin O’Donovan – Extended Edition

Yesterday’s release of Round Zero went down a treat.

In Sideline Films and’s first edition of the format, Stephen McAfee and Colin O’Donovan went head to head in a war of words ahead of their Fight of the Year rematch this weekend in Dublin.

Following a fantastic, short-notice clash in December, the super featherweight pair rematch this Saturday [March 24th] at Good Counsel GAA in Drimnagh – this time as the bill-toppers and for the BUI Celtic title.

Irish boxing fans loved the high-quality video which gave some welcome glamour to what’s sure to be a small-hall classic.

However, the 14 minute video posted to Facebook was only around half of what was filmed and today we release the full discussion.
