Egan faces the fight of his life

August 2 Paddy Power Press release

Paddy Power was in  Kenny Egan’s corner today to announce a new sponsorship deal with the Olympic  Silver medallist ahead of his crucial box-off with current champion Joe Ward  next week.

The ten-time senior champion will face the fight of his life  next Wednesday when he meets Moate man Joe for the second time in a bout which  will ultimately decide the pairs’ Olympic future.

Paddy Power can hardly  split the pair. The odds on Clondalkin southpaw Kenny Egan winning back the  title he lost in February are 6/4 while seventeen year old Joe is 1/2 to hold on  to the senior title he snatched earlier in the year and follow his dream to the  London games in 2012.

Paddy Power said: “This was one fight our odds  compilers were dreading pricing because it really is impossible to call. There’s  no doubt about it young Joe is strong and has a bright future but Kenny will be  looking to rectify some mistakes that were made back in February. We’re  expecting this one to go to the wire.”
