Battle of the unbeaten in Belfast

Somoneone's '0' has got to go

With the opponents for Padraig McCrory (4-0-KO2) and Sean McGlinchey (2-0) withdrawing at short notice, a late-night deal was struck for the pair to risk their flawless records live on BoxNation.
McCrory has built up a solid fanbase over the course of his four fights and has already fought twice at The SSE Arena; most recently on the undercard of Michael Conlan’s homecoming card back in June.
McGlinchey was a standout amateur and went to the Commonwealth Games with the likes of Paddy Barnes before ‘Mummy’s Bhoy’ turned professional last year.
The additional bout complements an already-stacked top half of the card at the Titanic Exhibition Centre, where the unbeaten Tyrone McCullagh headlines the bill in challenging Josh Kennedy for the WBO European super-bantamweight title.
Elsewhere on the MTK Global show, Paddy Gallagher faces Jay Byrne for the BUI Celtic super-welterweight title, Marco McCullough takes on Ruddy Encarnacion for an IBO world ranking and local light-heavyweight Steven Ward steps in against Mexican champion Rolando Paredes.
There are also slots for world-ranked featherweight Nathaniel May, former European middleweight king Conrad Cummings and rising stars Gary Cully, Sean McComb, Steven Donnelly.
