With just under two weeks left until the first professional boxing show in Ireland in 2015 gets underway at the Devenish Complex, Belfast, there is a buzz of excitement growing around the much anticipated return of North Belfast prospect Ciaran McVarnock.

22-year-old McVarnock, from the Antrim Road area of Belfast, is the great nephew of legendary Belfast boxer Bunty Doran. The Manchester-based prospect (currently 2-0 as a pro) is signed to boxing guru Frank Warren and coached by former middleweight Anthony Farnell who also trains IBF bantamweight champion Paul Butler. Liverpool’s Butler will join Farnell in McVarnock’s corner for his home debut.

When asked how he felt about his Belfast homecoming Ciaran replied, “I bring a big crowd, I am exciting and I will steal the show!”

The enticing ‘Stand & Deliver’ card is co-headlined by 21-year-old featherweight sensation James Tennyson and talented lightweight Paul ‘Hylo’ Hyland with both boxers eager to progress up the rankings.

Concluding the card will be Tyrone McKenna (Belfast), Darren Cruise (Roscommon), Alan Donnellan (Galway) and Michael McKinson (Portsmouth).

Tickets for the big show are priced at £40.00 VIP Ringside and£30.00 Unreserved. Tel: 07712473905, grab them from The Devenish Complex or contact the boxers.
