Haughian US bound

9 March 2010 – By Cormac Campbell

Stephian Haughian looks set to make his US debut on March 27 in Poughkeepsie, New York.

The 25-year-old Irish welterweight champion, who has been tipped to meet gymmate Willie Thompson later this year, has yet to learn the identity of his opponent for the Brian Burke promoted card at the Mid-Hudson Civic Centre.

Lurgan native Haughian, 18-1-1 (8KO) will be looking to bounce back from last Septembers disappointing draw at the O2 with Albert Starikov.
