Gary O’Sullivan, TJ Doheny, and Steve Collins Jr will all fight on the undercard, so to speak, of the Dropkick Murphys’s ‘Irish Festival’ at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford on Saturday September 17th
Celtic-Punk giants The Dropkick Murphy’s are themselves the headline attraction of the night, with support coming from the boxers as well as James Fearnley of The Pogues, Dublin band Blood or Whiskey, and the Old Brigade.
Cork’s O’Sullivan [22(15)-2(1)] will headline the boxing portion of the card alongside Murphy’s stablemate Mark DeLuca.
World title-chasing super bantamweight TJ Doheny [15(11)-0] of Portlaoise will look to move himself further up the rankings, while Collins [8(3)-0-1] will be hoping to keep up his Stateside streak of victories.
More Irish fighters could also be potentially announced in the coming days, including the likes of Wexford heavy Niall Kennedy [5(3)-0], and Athlone welter Paddy Irwin [2(2)-0].
