Irish boxer Eamonn O’Kane will show that he’s got the full package when he trials a new marketing technique encouraging punters to scan his crotch at the weigh-in for Saturday’s Betfair Prizefighter Middleweights show in Belfast.
In what’s thought to be a world first, O’Kane will step on to the scales wearing a pair of boxer shorts specially designed by event sponsors Betfair.
The eight fighters in the all-Irish Betfair Prizefighter Middleweights came face-to-face at the stunning surroundings of the world famous Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland for the Sky Sports promotional shoot on Tuesday.
Eamonn O’Kane believes fighting on the Brook vs Hatton undercard was the perfect preparation for his Betfair Prizefighter all-Irish Middleweights appearance at King’s Hall in Belfast on May 5, live on Sky Sports.
O’Kane man beat local boy Wayne Reed at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on St Patrick’s Day in his fourth professional bout, dropping Reed in the fifth on the way to an impressive 60-53 points win in their six rounder.
Carl Frampton successfully defended his Commonwealth super-bantamweight title with a second round knockout of Prosper Ankrah from a sweet left hook.
