Feargal McCrory headlines fight night at the Devenish Complex
UNBEATEN lightweight Feargal McCrory headlines tonight's bill at the Devenish Complex in Belfast.
The Coalisland fighter (4-0) takes on Liverpool's Jay Carney over eight rounds on the seven-fight card and he faces a step up in class against ‘Bam Bam' who has won his last three and will certainly come to win tonight.
Also on the bill is Belfast-based British super-featherweight challenger Ronnie Clark who takes on Imre Nagy in the chief support. The card, the fifth to be put together by Kieran Farrell Promotions, also features professional debuts for Derry's former amateur stand-out Sean McGlinchey and Sean Higginson.
Meanwhile, Frank Warren's announcement of a Belfast show on June 17 has put an end to speculation that Belfast bantamweight Ryan Burnett was to take on Lee Haskins in a Matchroom fight night on the same date.
According to some reports, the IBF have agreed Haskins-Burnett, but it looks likely that the proposed match-up will now take place in England. So too will Anthony Cacace's British super-featherweight meeting with Martin J Ward, with a London venue in early June looking probable.
