Paddy Gallagher has been itching to get punching again and the Irish boxing prospect finally gets his wish tonight at the Devenish Complex. Paddy has made some alterations to his background setup and new trainer John Breen has been busy implementing some refinements to the welterweight’s game.
With just less than four weeks left until Dee Walsh and Terry Maughan clash for the vacant Irish light-middleweight title at the new Devenish Complex, another top prospect has been added to the card by MHD Promotions. Former Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist and Prizefighter runner up Paddy Gallagher makes his ring return on the ‘Back To The Future’ undercard.
Paul Hyland Jnr is stepping up to six rounds on Mark Dunlop’s November 22 card as the 24-year-old steadily moves along his professional learning curve. The popular Belfast boxer is fresh off the back of a resounding 40-35 success over Gloucester’s Andy Harris on the last Devenish show and will now look to stave off the threat of southpaw mover Lewis O’Mara as part of the ‘Back to the Future’ event headlined by Dee Walsh. Speaking after the Harris victory Hyland Jnr was generally pleased with his display and whenever the youngster planted his feet and let the punches go it looked increasingly likely that the usually resolute visitor was close to being removed early.
Ryan Burnett has been added to Mark Dunlop’s ‘Back to the Future’ card on Saturday, November 22 in the Devenish Complex, Finaghy Road North. This latest MHD Promotions card sees the cream of Belfast’s young crop of talent enjoying another run-out as they chase title opportunities. In the headline attraction Dee Walsh takes on Terry Maughan for the vacant Irish light-middleweight title and Olympic Youth gold medallist Burnett has bagged a spot on the undercard.

Belfast manager Pat Magee knows a thing or two about bringing a fighter along the right way. Having guided namesake Brian Magee to the highest level, as well as handling a string of other talented pugilists, Pat is ready to let his latest hope, Tommy McCarthy, off the leash. Speaking shortly after Tommy’s first-round destruction of Dimitar Spaiyski in the Devenish Complex Magee discussed his bright prospect’s progress so far and where they plan to take the 24-year-old next.

James Fryers is willing to do whatever it takes to get the victories on his record even if that means stepping into the trenches and winning ugly. The Belfast lightweight was made to work hard for his fifth professional win, achieved in the Devenish Complex last Saturday evening, but he managed to grind out a shutout over Portsmouth southpaw Lewis O’Mara. As the Irish boxing system continues to push out talented fighters from a relentless conveyor belt Fryers could be one to watch in the future.

This interview with red-hot Irish boxing prospect Dee Walsh was published on Niall Doran’s Boxing Blog which is one of the many outlets we contribute to.
Dee Walsh produced a boxing masterclass on Saturday evening to repel the threat of Poland’s Adam Grabiec over four rounds. Walsh’s 40-36 success at Belfast’s Devenish Complex was never in doubt but it was the manner of the victory, rather than the cold statistics of a unanimous decision, that impressed ringside observers.
