On Saturday, March 8 super-featherweight prospect Daniel ‘Insane’ McShane enjoyed a welcome run-out in Kecskemet, Hungary. The 20-year-old recorded his eighth professional victory, returning home with a solid points win over Ignac Kassai in a four-rounder.

Daniel was the only away winner on the massive 11-fight card which included three WBO European title fights. Former world title challenger Zsolt Bedak and ex-WBO light-heavyweight belt holder Zsolt Erdei, who went on a long run of defences from 2004-2009, also featured on the bill.

‘Insane’ McShane will next be in action when he tops the bill on the “Road to Glory” show which is scheduled for Saturday, May 10 at the Devenish Complex in Belfast.

That bill also includes the much anticipated return of Dee Walsh who is resuming his career following a 20-month layoff. ‘Wealthy’ Walsh has signed with promoter Mark Dunlop and clearly has the talent to mix with the best light-middleweights on the domestic circuit if he is able to string together a good winning run.

Reigning Irish super-featherweight champion James Tennyson will be looking to bounce back from an unexpected defeat at the hands of Pavels Senkovs. James will face English battler Ian Bailey while tough light-middleweight Gerard Healy meets Liam Griffiths. Alan Donnellan, Anthony Upton and Lajos Nagy will all feature.

Tickets for the Devenish show are priced £40 VIP Ringside and £30 Unreserved.
