Ennis boxer Paddy Donovan is back in the ring this Friday as he goes in search of his sixth professional win.

Donovan takes on former Southern Area champion Siar Ozgul as part of #MTKFightNight at the University of Bolton Stadium on Friday 19 February. The bout will be broadcast live worldwide on IFL TV.

With three knockout wins under his belt, Paddy will be hoping to make it six wins from as many fights when he enters the ring on Friday. It will be the second time he takes on a former Southern Area champion having accounted for Jumanne Camero (10-7, 3KOs) in November.

Ozgul has fifteen wins from twenty fights including three knockout wins. He has previously gone the distance with the likes of Viktor Postol, Anthony Yigit and Sean McComb.

Twenty two year old Paddy is trained by Andy Lee and is regarded as one of the most exciting prospects in Irish boxing.

MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton believed a “superb battle” was on the cards. “We’ve been looking for an opponent for Donovan for a while, so huge credit must go to Ozgul for jumping at the chance, in what will be the toughest fight of Paddy’s career to date”.
