Jamie Kavanagh will compete for only the second time in Europe and for the first time since 2011 on September 26.
‘The Nuisance’ has relocated from America in a bid to get in the Irish and British lightweight mix and will take step one of his new journey at Wembley on the undercard of Celtic Gym Warrior Frank Buglioni’s WBA title fight.
The show including Kavangh´s fight will be shown live on BoxNation and Irish fight fans will be afforded the opportunity to run the rule over the former Golden Boy puncher.
MGM’s Kavanagh´s opponent is yet to be announced.
“I´m looking forward to the fight,” said Kavanagh “Looking forward to fighting in the UK and starting the next chapter of my career. It will be great to be on such a big show and I look forward to getting a win and raising my profile.”
MGM Management said “We promised Jamie we would get him busy straight away on big shows and this is just the start of big things to come for him.”
