All Ireland title beckons for Gort man in kickboxing bonanza

An All Ireland title is up for grabs on Saturday when Galway Black Dragon kickboxer, Gort’s Eric Daly, takes on Northern Ireland champion Paul Brannigan at the Black Box Theatre.

Daly, who is the Irish No 1 ranked contender, will fight it out for the vacant IKF All Ireland superlightweight full contact kickboxing title.

Daly, who was a silver medallist at last year’s World Martial Arts Games in Italy, travels into the Galway Black Dragon Gym from Gort four times a week as well as pounding the roads closer to home in preparation for his big fight.

The promotion will start at 7pm with 13 fighters from the Black Dragon camp making up the undercard to Daly’s attempt at All Ireland glory. This includes a heavyweight battle under full K-1 Rules featuring world gold medallist Aidan Brooks who is also managed and promoted by Pete Foley.

Tickets are on sale now from Town Hall Theatre, Sally Longs Bar, or Black Dragon Gym. For more information phone 087 8119227 or log onto
