Patrick Hyland will have the support of his two boxing brothers when he makes his Team Snooki boxing debut in Atlantic City on January 28.
Tallaght natives Eddie and Paul will swap Tallaforia for Jersey Shore and fight on a card topped by their American based brother and promoted by MTV star Snooki.
All three brothers and Golden Cobra graduates will trade leather with yet to be confirmed opponents at the Resort Casino Hotel early next year.
It is Patrick Hyland’s first fight since moving to America and signing with the Stateside promotional company Final Round and he will be keen to impress.
Hyland currently holds the longest unbeaten run amongst current Irish professionals, but he now wants to claim prestigious titles and not just fan and press accolades.
The undefeated 28 year old thinks his Snooki hook up and move across the Atlantic will help him achieve that.
“I have made the right move in terms of my career. America is the place to be as a fighter, plus the boxing has dipped a bit in Ireland with no shows at all. So I think I have made the right move,” Hyland previously told Mirror Sport.
“I have a fight date now and then we are looking to be out again in March. Hopefully the March clash will be some form of title shot. I am really happy that I have a fight date sorted. I am doing a 10 round fight and they have a few fighter’s on a short list.”
