LONDON 2012 hero John Joe Nevin will return to the ring as early as December 13.
The Mullingar Shuffler will fight for the fourth time as a pro in New York on the same night as Andy Lee challenges for a World title in Las Vegas.
The bout will be Nevin’s fourth as a pro and his third since he returned from a horrific double leg break.
One of Ireland’s greatest amateurs told his local paper the Westmeath Examiner,
“I haven’t been told who it is yet – but I’m really looking forward to it,” said Nevin, who beat Jack Heath in a round earlier this month.
“They’ve to tell me yet where the fight is taking place: I just know it’s in New York.” –
