Originally due to take place at the Good Counsel GAA Club in Drimnagh on Saturday June 16th, the show has been moved to SATURDAY JULY 14th at the SAME VENUE.
All fighters due to feature on the first date remain on the bill for July 14th.
The reason for the unavoidable shift is a spate of injuries and niggles that have decimated the top of the Dublin card.
Headliner Eric Donovan requires a little extra time to recover from his finger fracture while there have been minor niggles suffered by Carl McDonald and Keane McMahon who were due to face Colin O’Donovan and Jade Karam respectively in the two chief support bouts.
The switch now means that the next professional boxing card in Ireland is the big Mick Conlan homecoming bill at the SSE Odyssey Arena in Belfast on June 30th. This kicks off a busy period for Irish boxing, with JB Promotions running their inaugural bill at the National Stadium on July 7th before the refixed Celtic Clash 6 card on July 14th.
Boxing Ireland’s Stephen Sharpe explained how “a number of lads have picked up injuries and we felt that in order to provide boxing fans with the best card possible we would need to put the show back a couple of weeks. Tickets for our new date will be available from fighters within the next few days.
The line up for the Boxing Ireland Promotions and Tony Davitt Promotions bill sees Eric Donovan, Carl McDonald v Colin O’Donovan, and Keane McMahon v Jade Karam at the top of the show with an undercard consisting of Jay Byrne, Rohan Daté, Chris Scuvie, John Joyce, Niall O’Connor, Stephen McAfee, Owen Duffy, and debutant Conor Cooke.
