You ain’t seen nothing yet- coach McCafferty sings Walsh’s praises

THERE was no bombs from Dee Walsh on ‘Dee Day’, but the Irish light middleweight champion re affirmed his one to watch status with a boxing masterclass at the Devinish on Satruday night.

Patryk Litkiewicz was brought in to ask questions of 25 year old, but Walsh was harder to find than his namesake ‘Waldo’ is in the famous books. The MHD Promotions puncher was untouchable over eight rounds and registered a shut out much to the delight of his support.

Granted the Pole isn’t a World beater, but all those in attendances were impressed with the manner in which Walsh out classed him.

While coach Ger McCafferty was impressed he promised fight fans there is more to come from his charge.

Indeed the Belfast boxing coach told fight fans to ready themselves to be further impressed by the St James’ man.

“Under the circumstances,(The passing of Eamonn Magee Jr) to miss a weeks training two weeks before a fight I was worried. We were thinking of pulling the show because of the situation but we spoke it over and we said out of respect for Eamonn we would give it a go,” McCafferty told

“I was worried before he got in the ring because he had missed so much and because we knew this guy was going to be an eight round fight, but he showed what he is made of- and I am telling you, you haven’t seen anything yet.

“Mark keeps moving him up a level and every time someone better is put in front of him he steps up to the plate.He is just going to keep growing, he is being brought along the right way and eventually he will get to the top were he is destined to be.”
