VIDEO: McDonagh: After Byrne I want Malignaggi and European title

Peter McDonagh and Dean Byrne do battle at the weekend for the Irish welterweight title in Dublin’s National Stadium.

Thursday at the venue, promoter’s MGM held the pre-show fight conference where Irish-boxing.com got the chance to talk to Galway’s McDonagh.

The two-time Irish champ, who grew up London, spoke of his displeasure with Dean Byrne’s recent ‘Plastic Paddy’ jibes, his prediction for the fight, and his big plans for the future.
