Hylands set for Duddy card

9 December 2008 – By Mark Doyle

All three Hyland brothers are set to return to the United States for a John Duddy-headlined bill at Madison Square Garden on March 16.

Irish super-featherweight champion Eddie, 27, made a successful American debut earlier this month when he impressively outpointed Gustavo Dailey at the Roseland Ballroom in New York.

Meanwhile, Irish super-bantamweight titlist Paul and featherweight number one Patrick were both enthusiastically received when they fought in Philadelphia in October.

As a result, all three are now being lined up to feature on the undercard when Duddy makes his long-awaited return to the ring in his adopted home of New York.

Certainly, the eldest of the Hyland brothers, Eddie, is looking forward to fighting in The Big Apple again.

“I was delighted with the reception I got in New York and I’m really looking forward to going back there with my brothers in March,” he enthused.

Meanwhile, next up for Paul is a clash on Frank Maloneys stellar bill at Dublin City University on December 18.

Tickets for the DCU card, which will also feature the professional debut of Darren Sutherland, are available from www.frankmaloney.com, www.ticketmaster.ie. To order from Ireland by phone call 08 18 719300, and from UK 0871 226 1508.
