Big Bang Casey splits with Gary Hyde

Willie Casey’s turbulent 2011 came to disappointing end as he parted company with Nowhere2Hyde promotions this week.

The former European Champion is now a free agent spliting with manager Gary Hyde after just one fight. The Limerick southpaw, who became a massive fans favourite in 2010, suffered a disapointing 2011.

He lost out in a world title fight to the sensatioanl Guillermo Rigondeaux, witnessed the colapse of Dolphil Promotions, had a Limerick City homecomeing show canceled and saw a number of fights fall through in recent months.

‘Big Bang’ will be hoping to explode back on the scene in 2012 and there will be no shortage of promoters interested in signing him up.

A short statement released yesterday revealed

“Nowhere 2 Hyde’s management agreement with Willie Casey was today terminated by mutual consent. We wish Willie all the success in the world.”
