Two new additions to Dublin MGM November 7th show

There have been two late additions to the massive MGM-Boxnation show in Dublin on November 7th at the National stadium.

English middleweight contender Jamie Cox 19(11)-0, and highly rated Indian middleweight prospect Vijender Singh 1(1)-0 will box on the ‘Second Coming’ show in the National Stadium.

Both were due to box in London this weekend but the bouts have been postponed and moved across the Irish Sea.

Cox will defend his WBO European title against Ferenc Albert [20(9)-7(3)], while Singh will continue his pro education against Dean Gillen [2(0)-0].

The news comes after the withdrawal of Belfast lightweight Joe Fitzpatrick.
The card in full is now:
Jamie Conlan’s defence of his WBO Intercontinental super flyweight title
Dean Byrne v Peter McDonagh for the Irish welterweight title
Ian Tims v Michael Sweeney for the Celtic Nations title
Jamie Cox v Ferenc Albert for the WBO European middleweight title
Declan Geraghty (lightweight)
Jamie Kavanagh (lightweight)
Sean Turner (heavyweight)
David Maguire (cruiserweight)
Ciaran McVarnock (super featherweight)
Ciaran Mullen (super middleweight)
Vijender SIngh v Dean Gillen

‘Second Coming’ will be shown exclusively live on Boxnation on November 7th (Sky channel 437).
