June 24 Brendan Galbraith
Former Irish amateur star Eamonn O’Kane arrived with manager Francie McNicholl to weigh in with tough Belfast man Tommy Tolan in their co-feature bout. Both Tolan and O’Kane looked is great shape and this bout promised to be an intriguing contest. O’Kane is well known for enjoying a tear-up but will have to tread carefully to avoid Tolan’s concussive firepower.
Eamonn O’Kane (1-0) 11 6 10 v Tommy Tolan (4-4)11 10 8
Marc McCullough 8 13 6 (debut) v Eddie Nesbitt (debut) 9 1 6
