Pro boxing returns to Dublin for the first time in over a year on 3 November, with a bumper bill headlined by Limerick's ‘Big Bang’ Willie Casey and Dublin’s Anthony ‘The Pride' Fitzgerald.

Tallaght’s National Basketball Arena will host the highly-anticipated Dublin return of former European champion and world-title challenger Casey.

Having overcome Jason Booth to land the WBA European super bantamweight title in July, Casey will hope to build on his recent success at the south Dublin venue.

The other half of the co-main event will see Fitzgerald make his ring return following a contentious Prizefighter defeat to eventual tournament winner Eamonn O’Kane at the Kings Hall in Belfast a little over five months ago.

The former WBF Intercontinental and EBA middleweight strap holder will be looking to make a return to winning ways in his native city.

Fight fans will also be treated to a clash for the Irish super featherweight title involving the big hitting Belfast prospect Anthony Cacace, while his stable-mate Joe Hillerby will also be fighting for honours.

Further details of the exciting Dublin fight night will be revealed over the coming weeks in what promises to be an action-packed night of professional boxing.
