Ger Healy [5(0)-4(1)-1] claims there would be nothing sweeter than becoming Irish champion by defeating his ‘arch enemy.’
John Hutchinson [7(1)-2(0)-2], who twice fought bloody affairs with the Belfast puncher, told Irish-boxing.com earlier this week that he is desperate for a second Irish title tilt, having previously came up short against Peter McDonnagh.
Healy has taken the bait and is more than keen for a third instalment.
“To win the Irish title against my arch enemy would be as sweet as it gets,” he told Irish-boxing.com.
“John is looking for an Irish title fight with me and I wouldn’t say no.”
“I think everyone knows it would be great fight. It’s a fight I want. If it happens it will be war.
“I will be going all out for 10 rounds, although I don’t think he will last that long.”
Buncrana’s Hutchinson was looking to fight for the light middleweight title, a strap recently held by Healy’s former stable mate Dee Walsh and currently decorating the waist of Pauly Upton, but the 32 year old Belfast fighter advises the pair could fight for the middleweight version of the title if MGM’s Upton isn’t keen on vacating.
“If it can’t be made for the light middle, the middleweight is still up for grabs. and we could fight for that title. Hopefully it is made and hopefully it can be shown on Boxnation.”
However Healy, who only recently returned from a ring hiatus, says he needs conformation of the fight as soon as possible so he can get ready for the rumoured November 5th Belfast date.
“The last two fight were brilliant and this would be a war especially with a title on the line.
“But If it’s going happen I would need to know ASAP so I can get in my head in the game and prepare for the fight.”
