Boxing is really buzzing at the minute in Belfast.
Olympians Paddy Barnes and Michael Conlan both picked up medals at the Games in London yesterday.
Barnes and Conlan both won bronze medals after both fighters put in fantastic efforts in their semi-finals.
And when the drama and excitement of the Games comes to an end - there is a super show at the Odyssey on September 22 to look forward to.
The card at the Belfast venue is filled with fights of real quality, as Carl Frampton challenges Kiko Martinez for the Spaniard’s European title.
Martin Lindsay will face Lee Selby for Selby’s British and Commonwealth titles and Jamie Conlan looks set to fight for an Inter-Continental belt on the same bill.
And not to be outdone Eamonn O’Kane could challenge for the Celtic belt, while Paul McCloskey will also be back in action after his defeat to DeMarcus Corley.
And O’Kane says boxing in Ireland is flying at the minute.
“The success at the Olympics has been great.
“I thought Conlan and Barnes were outstanding and I thought Barnes should have gone on to fight for the gold or the silver.
“The two of them put on great displays and they should be proud of their achievements.
“Katie Taylor won a gold medal and John Joe Nevin is in the final of his weight division.
“I think Nevin can win gold and for the Ireland team to win two gold and two bronze medals is fantastic,” he added.
And O’Kane is sure that all the guys on the Odyssey bill will be doing their best to carry on with the success that has been achieved at the Games.
“Yes, we want to keep the buzz going that has been created at the Olympics.
“It will be a great night for local boxing if Frampton, Lindsay, McCloskey, Jamie Conlan and myself all won our fights at the Odyssey,.
“I was offered a Celtic title fight against Lee Churcher, but he now cannot make the fight.The aim is still for me to fight for the Celtic title and move on from there.”
