Bookies’ favourite Eamonn O’Kane roared to victory in the all-Irish Betfair Prizefighter Middleweights at the King’s Hall in Belfast on Saturday night.
O’Kane defeated JJ McDonagh in the final and was a deserved winner, not least for his part in the fantastic opening quarter-final of the night, which saw the Commonwealth Games gold medalist and Anthony Fitzgerald going toe-to-toe for the full three rounds.
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.
