Hyland shot in ballance

22 March 2009 – By Cormac Campbell

Paulie Hylands hopes of a European title shot hang in the balance after Ian Napa sensationally lost the title to Frenchman Malik Bouziana on Friday night.

Hyland-Napa looked set to take place in Dublin in May, with Darren Sutherland also expected to return to his home city for the third fight of his professional career.

Promoter Frank Maloney had also hoped to secure a major contest for Hylands brother, Eddie, and possibly field EBU super-bantamweight kingpin Rendall Munroe one last time in Dublin ahead of a mouth-watering clash with new WBA champion Bernard Dunne in the summer.
