Declan Trainor will get back to action at the Fairways Hotel in Dundalk on Saturday night.
The Warrenpoint fighter faces Tamas Danko on a packed bill after having only one fight so far as a professional.
That fight was in Australia in 2010 and Trainor has since returned home and opened a fitness gym in his home town.
So why has he decided to return to the ring after a two year absence?
“I have missed being involved in boxing and I just wanted to get back in the ring. I enjoy training and fighting. I always planned to return to the ring, but I have been setting up my fitness business and now that is up and running I can devote more time to boxing.
“I am delighted to be back and am looking forward to getting started again at the Fairways Hotel in Dundalk.
“Preparation and training at the Kronk Gym in Belfast has gone well and I want to put on a good show at the Fairways Hotel, win the fight and move on.
“I want to move myself up the rankings and I want to be fighting for a British title in about two years time,” he added.
Trainor will be joined on the bill by Kronk stable mates James Tennyson and Daniel ‘Insane’ McShane.
Both Tennyson and McShane boast unbeaten records and Trainor says that gives him motivation to do well.
“They are unbeaten, so I don’t want to let them down.
“The coach Tony Dunlop is also unbeaten as a professional coach, so I don’t want to let any of them down. And I don’t intend to,” he added.
Also on the bill are Matthew Wilton, Willie Casey, Anthony Fitzgerald, Phillip Sutcliffe Jnr, Noel O’Brien, Willie Mitchell and Ireland’s only female professional boxer Christina McMahon.
Tickets can be purchased on 07712 473905 and return buses are available from Belfast.
