Soldier joins ‘Irish Invasion’ – Donegan added to Irish stacked York Hall bill

Dominic Donegan [1-0] has been rewarded for an impressive debut with a fight at the icon York Hall.

The Cavan native is the latest Irish name to be confirmed on the June 22 London bill.

The Drumgoon light middleweight made his professional debut as recent as May 25 where he was one of the stand-out performers on the ‘Celtic Clash 8’ bill in Belfast – and he hasn’t had to wait around for conformation of his next fight. 

The Boxing Ireland prospect, who made people take note when became one of the few to drop the ultra-experienced Liam Griffiths in his first paid bout, fights within less than a month on a bucket list venue. 

The Irish Army man joins a host of other Irish fighters on the The Hellraiser Boxing ‘Irish Invasion’. 

Irish featherweight and light middleweight champions Eric Donovan [9(5)-0] and Craig O’Brien [10(1)-1(1)] are both also slated to appear alongside BUI Celtic light welterweight champion Victor Rabei [7(2)-0].

Then there is light Cillian Reardon [5(0)-0] appears, Kerry light heavyweight prospect Kevin Cronin [1(0)-0], and Waterford duo Rohan Date [8(6)-0-1] and Craig McCarthy [6(1)-0] will also grace the venue.

Opponents have yet to be named for any of the confirmed Irish fighters on the card. Despite some early suggestions a domestic title or two may get a York Hall showing it now appears it will be routine record builders all round.
