Dee Taggart claims being confirmed on the big Odyssey Arena September 10 bill is a massive high in a career that has more up and downs than a Bernard Dunne Ricardo Cordoba fight.
Taggart suffered disappointment last month when his scheduled Wembley performance was cancelled, but a fight on the biggest boxing night to come to Belfast in years will help the Mickey Harte mentored puncher get over the recent low.
The John Breen trained fighter is delighted he has a chance to put a smile on the Tyrone managers face and is overjoyed he has the opportunity to impress on the same card as Paul McCloskey, Breidis Prescott, Carl Framtpon and Kiko Martinez.
“I’m over the bloody moon, Especially after the sickening feeling that was Wembley,” Taggart told www.irish-boxing.com.
“John (Breen) told me he got me this bill just last week. It’s an honour to be fighting on such a massive show. My career has been a bit like that extreme highs and extreme lows. John and Eamon (Magee) have keep me very sharp so I hope it all pays of. Professional boxing is madness at times, but I hope to give all the people who are coming from Omagh a good night. Hopefully I can put smile on John Breen, Eamon Magee and Mickey Harte’s faces.”
