The away days don’t end there as Boxing Ireland promise three more of their stable will have European dates confirmed this week.
Fighting abroad is a growing trend for Irish fighter of late.
Victor Rabei, Ryan O’Rourke and Dylan Moran traded leather in Valencia just over a week ago. Wakefield in England has played hosts to fights for Jono Carroll, Gary Cully, Lewis Crocker, Padraig McCrory, Fearghus Quinn, Pierce O’Leary and James McGivern.
