This Saturday, 25th June, an enticing Summer Brawl kicks off at the Europa Hotel in Belfast, put on by promotor Mark H Dunlop (MHD Promotions) which features up and coming talent, a strong main event and local fighters in well matched fights looking for your support.

The main attraction of the night will feature two tough middleweights, Graham ‘G-Train’ McCormack (7-1-0) and his opponent Dominic ‘The Bomb’ Donegan (5-2-1). The two Irishmen will meet head-on in an evenly matched contest for the vacant BUI Celtic Middleweight Title. McCormack, who came up short for this very title at the back end of 2021 against Scotsman Paul Keane, will be seeking redemption in his bid for glory second time around. G-Train’s perseverance for the title shows that he means business and along with the experience under his belt from his past title bout, may slightly give him the edge in the contest.

Donegan, I’m sure, would disagree as he himself has had his fair share of experiences to use to his advantage. ‘The Bomb’ looks to get back to winning ways after a stint of adversity, drawing in his last bout and suffering defeat prior to that as well. But, once you’ve been in those situations you have nothing to lose, therefore Dominic Donegan will surely be putting it all on the line and pose a significant threat. 

Also on the card is featherweight Colm ‘Posh Boy’ Murphy (3-0-0), from Belfast, versus Nicaraguan Engel ‘El Cohete’ Gomez (8-11-1). I suspect ‘Posh Boy’ Murphy will adhere to his alias and will be attempting to send his opponent home in a politely mannered fashion as he continues to make his way in the professional game at the age of 22.

Super-welterweight Owen ‘The Operator’ O’Neill (7-0-0), also from Belfast, takes on Englishman Justin ‘The Genie’ Menzie (5-6-1). O’Neill heads into unfamiliar territory as this is his first 6 rounder and ‘The Genie’ will be looking to use some of his magic to put a stain on his opponent’s unbeaten record. Menzie, now 39, may have some hard questions to answer against the fitter, younger opponent in O’Neill. 

Cian Doyle (2-0-0), from Dublin, features on the bill heading into his third professional fight against Tatenda Mangombe (0-1-0) in the featherweight division. 21 year-old Doyle moves into his first 6 rounder in his career.

One debutant makes his first appearance in the pro ranks and his name is Daniel O’Sullivan, who will be campaigning in the middleweight division. He takes on Luke Middleton who has faced a handful of unbeaten opponents throughout his career making this a fair but challenging debut for O’Sullivan.

In the super-middleweight division Jamie Morrisey (2-0-0) takes on Seamus Devlin in his third 4 round contest. Morrisey, in his debut produced an impressive stoppage and then went on to beat an unbeaten opponent in his second fight. He will be looking to add to his early career accolades and is definitely one to watch.

If you’re in Belfast next Saturday, have a look into this event to witness a host of up and coming talent and a main event that has all the makings to be a brilliant dust-up. For tickets to this event you can phone 07712 473905.
