James Moore could challenge Neil Sinclair for the Irish light-middleweight title in April 2010.
The bout, between incumbent champion Sinclair of Belfast and New York-based Wicklow man Moore is slated to take place at City West under the Tommy Egan Promotions banner.
The bout had originally been slated for the undercard of Martin Rogans second clash with Sam Sexton in November, but failed to materialise. The mouth-watering bout will be Sinclairs first defence of the title he won with a stunning third round stoppage of Henry Coyle in May.
Moore for his part has fought just once as a professional in his native country.
Promoter Egan believes that such contests will stimulate the profile of the Irish title.
Stay tuned to irish-boxing.com for the upcoming edition of Sinky Says in which he will discuss the fight.
