Belfast Super Featherweight James Fryers will look to make it ten wins out of ten at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on October 17.

Fryers will tackle Barrington Brown as he looks to get another victory on his record.

The 22 year old Belfast lad is currently ranked 10 in Britain and knows a win over Brown will get him closer to a British title shot.

Paul Hyland Jnr tops the Europa bill when he faces Bence Molnar for the BPA International Masters Challenge Belt over eight rounds.

James Tennyson and Joe Fitzpatrick will also feature on the night, but Irish Light Middleweight Champion Dee Walsh has withdrawn due to a hand injury.

And Fitzpatrick will fight on the MGM show in Dublin on November 7. That show which Jamie Conlan headlines, will also feature Ciaran McVarnock.

Tickets available from the boxers on the bill or telephone 07712473905.

Meanwhile talented east Belfast welterweight Matthew Wilton has been added to the Red Cow show in Dublin on November 6.

Wilton - the younger brother of former British flyweight title challenger Luke - will be making his Dublin debut.

Wilton, who also fights in England on October 16, will be hoping he can push his record to 13-0 on the November date.

And finally Michael Conlan will captain Ireland at the 18th AIBA World Elite Championships and Olympic qualifiers in Qatar.

The current European Elite bantamweight champion will lead Ireland’s seven-strong squad on the Arabian peninsula.

Conlan, Brendan Irvine, Sean McComb, Dean Walsh, Adam Nolan, Michael O’Reilly and Joe Ward will represent Ireland in the Persian Gulf.

“I feel really honoured to be named Ireland captain. I know it’s the right time and I’m the right person for the role.

“I plan to lead the team in Rio, help motivate them and lead by example which I will do to the best of my ability.”
