Lynn Harvey [1(1)-1(0)] has teamed up with a new coach as she looks to progress to World title level in 2017.
The Kilbarrack puncher suffered defeat in just her second fight, losing to Mary Romero at the National Stadium on November 5th, but is confident she has what it takes to reach world level and has reacted as positively as possible to the points reverse.
The 35 year old light flyweight began her pro career at the Celtic Warriors Gym with Daniel O’Sullivan, understudy of respected coach Paschal Collins, but feels the time is right for a move to pastures new.
‘The Hunter’, who is said to be a target for a number of promoters, believes she has teamed up with a coach that can help her achieve her goals.
Therefore Harvey has started working with Tommy McCormack. The Dubliner will be known to most across the island as a respected cut man and hand wrapper, but it won’t surprise the fight family to see he has progressed into training.
The knowledgeable McCormack has experience working in corners as both a cut man and seconds, and has worked alongside former Irish champion Eddie Hyland coaching Carl McDonald and Jay Byrne of late.
The duo have already begun working together as they plan for a big 2017. The Kilbarrack native is rumoured to have February dates lined up already, and there is talk she may appear on proposed, but yet to be confirmed, shows in March.
