SEAN ‘Mummy’s Bhoy’ McGlinchey has chosen to accept a fight against Padraig McCrory with only hours remaining to the Danger at the Docks show in Belfast.
Derry Daily understands that some close to the Creggan middleweight has reservations on the short notice bout, but despite those objections, the 2012 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist has decided to make the high-risk walk later tonight.
An opponent for McGlinchey had been unconfirmed and the Derry man’s bout looked to be in limbo until McCrory tweeted on Thursday night.
With the clock ticking, McGlinchey (2-0) and McCrory (4-0-KO2) struck a late-night deal that will put their flawless records on the line live on BoxNation.
Writing on social media, McCrory said: ‘Tomorrow night we finally put a matter to rest when I take on Sean McGlinchey. After our history from the amateur days, this fight was always going to happen.’
