Ringside Irish special to be broadcast Thursday on Sky

Ringside takes a special look at Irish boxing on this week’s show.

Adam Smith and Johnny Nelson travelled to Dublin and Belfast to chart the history of the sport on the Emerald Isle and the fruits of their labour will be broadcast on Sky tomorrow.

Former world champions and Irish Boxing legends Barry McGuigan and Bernard Dunne will be on hand to offer their thoughts on the current crop of talent in their homeland.

The likes of Matthew Macklin, amateur ace Jason Quigley and McGuigan-trained Carl Frampton will be joined by Steve Collins, an undoubted legend of the fight game in Ireland, on the show.

Renowned trainer John Breen talks about the country’s rising talent and prospects for the future, while Olympic gold medal winner Katie Taylor will discuss her London 2012 triumph and plans for the future.
