PROFESSIONAL BOXING SET FOR DUNDALK HOMECOMING
KO Entertainment in association with Mark Dunlop have announced a promotional partnership that will see Christina McMahon and Declan Trainor share top-spot on the first of three planned professional boxing shows on the 9th of March in Dundalk.
Following Declan Trainor’s return from Australia where he served up an impressive professional debut stoppage of the much touted prospect Jamie Bogovic, the Warrenpoint Banger will now get the chance to impress on home soil.
Having joined up with Tony Dunlop at the Belfast Kronk Gym, the former Irish under 19 champion is certain to inject some excitement into Ireland’s already bubbling cruiserweight division.
Sharing centre stage at the Fairways Hotel will be another North East favorite Christina McMahon who will make her first professional appearance outside Dublin in a homecoming that is sure to delight her massive Carrickmacross following who will be required to travel less than twenty minutes to see their hero.
Fresh from her impressive Celtic Warrior Title win over French Champion Stephanie Ducastel, Ireland’s solitary native female professional will look to maintain current momentum which has secured her a 9th place world ranking.
With negotiations currently underway to secure a world title shot for Christina in Ireland this summer against WBC strap-holder Susie Ramadan, the former world kickboxing champion must deliver another impressive display come March 9th.
The Dundalk fight-night will also witness a number of young exciting prospects make their mark on what guarantees to be an explosive nights action.
Just off an impressive win over former Irish Champion Mickey Coveney and easily Ireland’s most active pugilist with four fights since his debut last September, the exciting 19 year old James Tennyson will look to take his record to an impressive 5-0 when he joins new stable-mate Trainor on the Card.
The third of the Mark Dunlop managed Kronk charges will be another of Belfast’s current stock of rising stars in Daniel “Insane” McShane, whose ring-entrance alone will be worth the night’s entrance fee.
Drimnagh puncher Noel O Brien will make the journey up the M1 as he looks to bring his professional record to 3-0 and continue his purist of an Irish title.
Following an impressive fourth round stoppage of the tough Brandon Peake last time out at the National Basketball Arena, the Philip Sutcliffe trained light welterweight is adamant of securing the domestic strap before the year is out.
Further details of the fight card will be made soon, with promoters promising a number of exciting additions. Tickets will go on sale next Monday the 14th of January and will be priced at £30/ €35 unreserved & £40/ €50 ringside and are available from fighters or Stephen Sharpe on 0879537526.
