Undefeated Irish Light Middleweight Champion Dee Walsh looks to stretch is perfect unbeaten record on March 28 at the Andersonstown Leisure Centre when he makes his 2015 debut.

The Belfast fighter will fight on the undercard of the James Tennyson and Kris Hughes British Featherweight Title Eliminator and Celtic Title showdown.

Walsh takes on Hungarian Peter Orlik – who himself is on a roll coming into the fight having won his last four fights.

Walsh at 25 years of age wants rounds as he moves up to another level having taken out Terry Maughan in his last fight to lift the Irish title in November, and he should get rounds with Orlik.

There is much talk of Walsh facing Rhys Pagan of Scotland on June 6 for a title fight in what could also turn out to be an eliminator for the British Light Middleweight belt.

Walsh has impressed so far as a professional with his fast hands and movement and he will be looking to make big strides in the coming months.

The card also has two undefeated prospects facing each other for the vacant Boxing Union of Ireland Celtic Nations Lightweight title when James Fryers and Mark Morris clash over eight rounds.

Fryers is a mover and a shaker, while Morris always comes to fight – so someone’s unbeaten record will go at the Belfast venue.

Paul Hyland Jnr (5-0) looks to have his work cut out also when he takes on the talented Hungarian Imre Nagy (12-5) for the International Masters Lightweight Title.

Daniel ‘Insane’ McShane, Tyrone McKenna and Joe Hillerby will also feature on the packed bill.

Tickets are available from the boxers on the show or on 07712 473905.
