An opponent has been named and the date is set for Boom Boom’s next fight…
Undefeated heavyweight boxer Niall Kennedy will face Mexico’s Chrisitan Mariscal on Saturday, June 23rd at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavillon, Gilford in America.
Kennedy, who hails from Gorey and Wexford, holds an immaculate 11-0 professional boxing record, with seven of those wins coming from knockouts or TKOs.
Similarly, the man in the other corner, Christian Mariscal, holds a respectable professional boxing record at 9-1, with four of those wins coming from knockouts.
Since turning professional in May 2015, Kennedy has continued to improve, with his most notable victory coming against the respectable Alexis Santos (18-1) to win the New England Heavyweight title in September 2017.
Kennedy made huge strides in the US in 2017, and he’s continued his winning streak into 2018. At the beginning of the year, the Gorey native comfortably defeated Aaron Chavers, and he’ll be looking for a similar result on June 23 against Mariscal.
