BRETT McGinty will fight for the third time as a professional on September 10, it has been confirmed.
The St Johnston man, 2-0 as a pro, will be part of a ‘boxing bonanza’ at the Coventry Skydome Arena on Friday 10th September, live and free in the UK and Ireland on Channel 5.
The Mick Hennessy-promoted show will give McGinty a chance to further enhance his pro record.
In May, the former European Schoolboys bronze and Commonwealth Youth silver medalist defeated Dwain Grant 40-36 points winner at the Skydome.
The Donegal prospect was too quick and sharp for Grant, landing an accurate left jab and pinning Grant to the ropes and working his body with the trademark vicious hooks.
McGinty made a successful transit into the pro ranks with a points win over Jan Ardon last December.
The former Oakleaf ABC puncher is training under Ricky Hatton in Manchester.
Hennessy is eagerly looking forward to the show, which will also feature McGinty’s Sheer Sports Management stablemate Stevie McKenna.
He said: “This is a real boxing bonanza of a card for the fight fans. After a very tough time that everyone has had, this is a show for the fans where they can come out and enjoy the fights, see the Hennessy Sports stable of champions from Sam, Kaisee, River, the return of Isaac, Shakan on his comeback, and our exciting future of young talents like Stevie, Idris, Brett, Tommy and Michael all showcasing their skills.
“The breadth of talent across the weight divisions is just incredible and shows the strength of British and Irish boxing as they look to shine on this massive night. There will be real entertaining, fifty-fifty, fights throughout the card to savour so don’t miss this one.”Tags:
