Eamonn Magee will make his professional boxing debut at the Holiday Inn in Belfast on June 6.

Magee - the son of Eamonn ‘The Terminator’ Magee - will show what he has to offer the professional ranks when he takes to the ring at the Belfast venue.

Magee will have to go some to surpass the record of his father as Magee Snr won 27 of his 33 fights as a professional. He also picked- up the Irish, Commonwealth and WBU World title along the way.

Magee also fought for the British and European titles and was the first man to floor when he met Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton in 2002, but son Eamonn has the pedigree to stamp his own mark on the professional ranks in the years ahead.

Also in the Holiday Inn show former British title challenger Luke Wilton will feature. Flyweight Wilton will be looking to get another shot at the British title before the year is out - so defeat at this stage are not an option.

Big punching heavyweight Sean ‘Big Sexy’ Turner will also make his professional debut on the night.

Unbeaten fighter Matt Wilton will also appear, along with talented featherweight Paul Quinn.
