Dolphil Promotions are delighted to announce that EBU Champion Willie Casey and Dean Byrne have been added to the December 10 card in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght.
The Limerick southpaw is set to raise the roof again when he returns to the ring as Champion of Europe on the undercard of Anthony Fitzgeralds WBF Title fight. Big Bang is keen to get back into the ring having dismantled Paulie Hyland in just four rounds just over two weeks ago. Im delighted to be fighting again so soon, Im feeling great and looking forward to putting on a show for all my fans in Dublin.
Casey is eager to remind fans that he will be taking nothing for granted and will not be looking too far ahead. It isnt a warm up though. That is a little disrespectful. I wont be taking anything for granted. I am a scalp now and I expect my opponent to be all out against me. I wont be thinking about Kiko until eight weeks before our March fight.
Having defeated Hyland in just his 11th professional fight, comparisons have been made to that of fairytales with some pundits labeling him The Cinderella Man. Willie Caseys dramatic story continues to unfold with the next chapter taking place Friday 10 December in the National Basketball Arena. Tickets are available from www.ticketgroup.ie.
Irish boxing fans must surely be licking their lips as Dolphil Promotions have also added Dean Byrne to the card. The Freddie Roach trained fighter will be looking to extend his unbeaten record to 14-0. The Crumlin native is relishing the opportunity to fight in front of his home fans again. The reception I got the last time was excellent and Im hoping that now I can start pushing for a World Title soon so fans can expect a top performance. Im feeling great; me and Freddie have been working on a few things so Im looking forward to getting into the ring. I was disappointed that my fight over here fell through and jumped at the chance of fighting at home again.
December 10 at the Basketball Arena has been dubbed The Prides Path to Glory by Dolphil Promotions with Anthony The Pride Fitzgerald taking centre stage contesting the WBF Inter-continental Title. Fitzgerald is joined by Dean Byrne, Willie Casey, Gavin Prunty, Christina McMahon, JJ McDonagh, Patrick Hyland, Paddy McDonagh, Noel OBrien.
