FAST FORWARD

The season in boxing comes to an end in august and takes a wee break so…

There’s not a lot to preview…

But Peaky Blinders is back soon…

Anyhoo what there is on this coming week is a bill tonight, Saturday the 3rd of August in Belfast where we get super middleweight Padraig McCrory v Steve Collins Jr for the BUI Celtic title, and featherweight Michael Conlan continues his explosive upward trajectory against Diego Alberto Ruiz for the WBA and WBO intercontinental belt. The McCrory/Collins Jr fight is a good one and smart money will be on McCrory but Collins is a handful whilst nobody will bet against Conlan with an Irish accent…

We also have middleweight Luke Keeler back in action against Luis Arias and most will expect keelr to come through whilst top of the bill should be the Commonwealth and British title fight between Paddy Gallagher and Chris Jenkins. Another very decent fight that could, in my opinion, go either way…

On the mainland, Oldham brings super welterweight Sam Eggington and light heavyweight Bob Ajisafe in action – no opponents named as yet but both are there to make a 10 fight bill look very good – they manage that well enough!

We also have, in New York, the WBC silver and interim WBA light heavyweight title fight between Marcus Browne and Jean Pascal. Should be a decent fight and Browne will be expected to get the win.

FUTURE HISTORY
