Pro Wexford Boxer Niall Kennedy Training For Paddy’s Day Showdown In Boston

Wexford’s own professional boxer Niall Kennedy is aiming to make a return to the ring in less than two months time…

Gorey native Niall Kennedy looks set on making a return to the ring after suffering a loss on the hands of Devin Vargas last time out in August 2019.

Despite the loss, the Gorey boxer, who also works with An Garda Síochána, has built up an impressive record to date in the boxing ring.

Kennedy, also known as “Boom Boom Bas”, now has a professional boxing record of 13-1-1 and is a fan favourite across the pond. The Gorey native won over many of Irish and American fans alike after he defeated Alexis Santos, who was 16-0 at the time, to be crowned USA New England Heavyweight Champion.

Kennedy is now eyeing up another return to Boston, pencilling in a date for March 14th, which is destined to be a St Paddy’s Day Card under Murphy’s Boxing at the House of Blues in Boston. Last year, Kennedy defeated Michael Marrone on Paddy’s Day Card at the House of Blues in Boston and just like last year, Kennedy will be hoping to place another win onto his record.

The card and Kennedy’s opponent is not yet confirmed, but Kennedy is currently in training with his eyes on that date. The promotion will confirm the exciting card in due course.
