Undercard slot on big Welsh show for Ciaran McVarnock

Top Pro Gif Ad
Belfast super feather Ciaran McVarnock [6(1)-0-1] will appear on one of the biggest Boxnation cards of the year.

‘Bunty’ has been added to the undercard of the Liam Williams v Ahmet Patterson and Chris Eubank Jr v Tommy Langford double header at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on Saturday October 22nd.

The four-round bout will be just the second fight of the year of the year for the Arnie Farnell-trained fighter who had a facile first round knockout of Ruslans Berdimuradovs back in May.

A date in late October means that 24 year old McVarnock is unlikely to appear on the November Belfast Boxnation show, although a homecoming appearance remains a possibility.

The card in the Valleys will also feature a rubber match between MGM’s Tom Stalker and Craig Evans, a British title defence for Bradley Skeete against Shayne Singleton, as well as appearances for Alex Hughes and Jay Harris, with more to-be-announced.
