Undefeated Ennis boxer, Paddy ‘Real Deal’ Donovan is to return to the ring in August.
With six wins from six outings in the professional ranks, Paddy has been making quite the impression with many pundits viewing him as one of the country’s brightest prospects in the sport.
His opponent is yet to be confirmed but the Clare fighter will be back in the ring on August 6th in Belfast.
It is expected that Paddy will appear on the undercard of Michael Conlan’s bout this summer as part of Feile An Phobail in an outdoor event in Falls Park in west Belfast.
Trained by Andy Lee, Paddy was last in professional action in February when he recorded a TKO win over Siar Ozgul.
Speaking after this win, Lee remarked, “The kid is a star as you can see and he is going to go places. This is only the beginning”.
An eight round fight was identified then as the next target by Donovan’s trainer while his team are hopeful he will challenge for a World Youth title before the end of 2021. Paddy turned 22 in January and has four knockouts among his six professional wins.
Since his last outing, Paddy has had some personal tragedy following the sudden death of his uncle William whom he was very close to.
