  • Mayo boxer Ray Moylette will fight for the first time since his Castlebar homecoming next month.

    ‘Sugar Ray’ will be in action on a July 12th card in America according to his coach Paschal Collins and www.irish-boxing.com

    Full details of the bout will be confirmed in the coming days.

    Encore Boston Harbor is said to be the venue for Moylette’s eighth fight in America. 

    It will be the first time the popular fighter will be in the ring since his lose to tough Mexican Christian Uruzquieta in December. 

    The 29-year-old former amateur standout saw his stock rise in defeat live on TG4 as he got up of the floor twice in a round in front of a vocal and sizable Royal Theatre crowd. 

     

  • Mayo’s Ray Moylette faces Larry Fryers in an intriguing America-hosted all-Irish clash this Friday. 

    The Islandeady boxer and the New York-based Clones fighter are scheduled to battle it out on a Murphys Boxing show at the Encore Casino in Boston Harbour(July 12th). 

    The clash will take place over eight rounds

    For ‘Sugar Ray’ it’s the first time he will be seen in a ring since his sensational but ultimately disappointing outing, in terms of the result in his TV-broadcast- Castlebar homecoming.

    The 29-year-old former amateur standout saw his stock rise in defeat, live on TG4 as he got up of the floor twice in a round in front of a vocal and sizable TF Royal Theatre crowd. 

    However, having lost to Mexican Christian Uruzquieta for the WBC International Silver title on that December night he will be more than eager to secure victory in America on Friday. 

    Yet, the Paschal Collins-trained fighter hasn’t been handed an easy return, stepping up in weight and straight into a domestic. 

    In Fryers he faces another keen-to-progress Irish fighter. Like his opponent, the 28-year-old Ulsterman knows what it’s like to suffer defeat on a breakthrough night. The Monaghan fighter was stopped by Russian dangerman Nikolay Buzolin on a big Matchroom card in Brooklyn.

     ‘Lethal Larry’ has been preparing for this bout with plenty of sparring with former light welter world champion Chris Algieri and will be confident his size and activity will be crucial advantages over former World Youth and European Elite champion Moylette.

  • Ray Moylette will have to overcome tough Mexican opposition if he is to claim his first professional title next month.

    The Islandeady lightweight makes his Mayo homecoming at the Royal Theatre in Castlebar on Friday December 7th and it has been announced that he will face Christian Uruzquieta for the WBC International rankings title.

    The 28-year-old Mexico City man looks, on paper, to be Moylette’s toughest pro opponent to date.

    A pro for almost ten years, Uruzquieta has plenty of experience fighting on the road and has been a repeat visitor to Canada where, over five fights, he has posted two upset wins, one draw, and two losses.

    One of these wins came against Steve Wilcox – who Irish fans may remember from his clash with Dublin light welter Darragh Foley earlier this year.

    Moylette comes into the bout following a fantastic start to pro life in which he has scored 11 wins in under a year and a half – most of which have come against solid, game opposition.

    Uruzquieta, however, represents a serious step up for the Mayo 28-year-old who will be looking to enter the WBC Top 15 with a win.

    Tickets for the card go on sale next week and a full undercard will be announced soon – with Moylette’s Celtic Warriors gym-mate Spike O’Sullivan already being confirmed this weekend.

  • Assassin Boxing have confirmed that they’ve once again teamed up with TG4 to offer live coverage of ‘The Homecoming’ on December 7th from The Royal Theatre, Castlebar.

    December 7th will see Ray Moylette challenge for his first title and look to gain world ranking credentials if he is to beat Mexican, Christian Uruzquieta. While the co main event bout will see Gary Spike O Sullivan return to the ring as he continues to go in search of a world title opportunity.

    Moylette commented: ‘It’s an honour to have TG4 on board. This is a massive event for my county, but now hopefully a massive event for this country. I said I want to bring big time boxing back to Ireland, and this is a good start’

    Professional boxing from Ireland has only been broadcast terrestrially once before in almost a decade.

    Ray Moylette’s manager, Kaz Evans said:‘To think Irish boxers have been starved of the right coverage and platform, we now have a partner that can turn professional boxers from local to hero’s to Irish sporting greats’.

    Assassin Boxing too were heavily involved in bringing television to the table for the show they co promoted in March.

    They’ve once again struck a deal with TG4, and it appears the station will be the home of Irish boxing for the foreseeable future.

    Conor Slater from Assassin Boxing commented:
    ‘It’s brilliant to be working again with Rónán and TG4. They are a wonderful entity to be involved with. They share our vision for where Irish boxing should be, and they have really taken the plunge and have backed Irish boxing, they should be commended. This is a huge opportunity for everyone involved and hopefully one that will become a regular fixture in the calendar year. The country has so many sporting super stars, Robbie Keane, Brian O Driscoll, Katie Taylor, and now we have a platform for Moylette to become an Irish sporting great.’

    TG4 will show 3 hours of live boxing on December 7th, following on from their coverage of March’s show which was also shown over a 3 hour slot.

    Head of Sport at TG4, Rónán O Coisdealbha said: 
    ‘It’s a honour to be able to show live coverage of ‘The Homecoming’ on December 7th. We really look forward to playing a part in showing a sport that has provided so many great nights for the Irish public. We hope to continue to work with Moylette and Spike O Sullivan as they work towards world title shots’.
