Fearghus Quinn turns pro

A new fight added to the #MTKFightNight event on Wednesday 26 August sees Irish amateur sensation Fearghus Quinn make his highly-anticipated professional debut, facing a tough test against former Southern Area title challenger Robbie Chapman (6-3).

Quinn achieved plenty of success as an amateur, winning both Ulster and Irish titles, and now takes his first steps in the paid ranks against a dangerous opponent in Chapman.

The British title eliminator between unbeaten Darren Tetley (20-0, 9 KOs) and the always-exciting Liam Taylor (21-1-1, 10 KOs) has also been brought forward a week and now takes place on August 26, meaning fans don't have to wait as long to see that superb contest.

Those two fights join a massive card in less than a fortnight, which features Lewis Crocker taking on Louis Greene for the WBO European welterweight title, Lee McGregor squaring off with Ryan Walker, Gary Cully taking on Craig Woodruff, and the debut of James McGivern.

Another stacked #MTKFightNight then occurs on Wednesday 2 September, where a huge grudge match added to the show sees Harlem Eubank (9-0, 2 KOs) square off with Martin McDonagh (8-1).

The two men met twice in the amateurs, with McDonagh winning on both occasions, so it's set to be yet another can't miss battle between the two men.

Scottish star Mark McKeown (2-0) will now return to the ring on that card as well, looking to build on the superb start he has made to his professional career.

Elsewhere on September 2, Akeem Ennis Brown and Philip Bowes clash for the British and Commonwealth super-lightweight titles, Dan Azeez defends his English heavyweight crown against Andre Sterling, undefeated Padraig McCrory faces Mickey Ellison, plus a battle of unbeaten fighters pits Elliot Whale against Corey McCulloch.
