WATCH: ‘Champions Elect’ – Headline Fights

Earlier this month Red Corner Promotions returned to the National Stadium in Dublin for their fourth show – ‘Champions Elect’.

Topping the bill was Cork welterweight Noely Murphy [12(2)-0] who took on Gyorgy Mizsei Jr, while chief support came from Craig O’Brien [6(0)-0] and Chris Blaney [9(3)-0] who fought for the BUI light middleweight and middleweight titles respectively against Alain Alfred and Matiouze Royer.

All three claimed big wins, with Murphy and Blaney scoring competitive but clear wins, while O’Brien rallied from a heavy first round knockdown to battle back and edge out a points decision.

Watch the three fights in full below.
