Stadium title defence lined up for Doheny

TJ Doheny will look to say goodbye to Continental level with victory on December 12th.

The Portlaoise puncher puts his PABA super bantamweight title on the line against a yet to be confirmed opponent at the Alexandria Basketball Stadium in New South Wales before Christmas, and will try and make an impression on the World stage in 2016.

Last month the 13-0 fighter defeated former two weight World champion Denkaosan Kaovichit and make a fifth successful defence of the title Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym used to get a shot at Bernard Dunne’s WBA World title, and declared his intention to progress to the next level next year.

Doheny, who saw fellow Irish Oz based puncher Gearoid Clancy make a successful New South Wales title defence last weekend and put himself in line to support Darragh Foley as he challenges for the Australian title this coming weekend, has set his sights on WBA Interim champion Moises Flores.

The World ranked fighter, who amazingly claimed Oceania’s version of the European title in just his fifth fight, feels he is now ready to make a bigger impact in an exciting weight class.
