Paul Hyland Jnr will fight for the British Masters title at Andersonstown Leisure Centre on March 28.

Hyland’s fight will be the chief support to James Tennyson’s bid to claim the Celtic title off Scotland’s Kris Hughes. Tennyson’s fight is also a British title eliminator.

Hyland – a 24-year-old electrician from Belfast – challenges Abdon Cesar for his British Masters title on ‘The Test’ undercard.

Cesar – from Cameroon – fought for his country at the London 2012 Olympics.

Hyland Jnr has won all of his five professional fights to date and he will be looking to add another victory on his record at the Belfast venue.

The undercard also features Dee Walsh, Joe Hillerby, Paul Quinn and James Fryers with two final names to be added to the right fight bill in the coming weeks.
