Aaron Gethins

  • Sligo PRO Boxer Aaron Gethins joined Midwest Sport this afternoon to discuss his career to date as well as the disappointment of his fight in Spain being called off later this month.

    The Sligo Town boxer is optimistic of getting a fight within the next couple of months.

     

  • Sligo boxer Aaron Gethins will return to the ring next month and it could set up a big homecoming.

    The Sligo Town welterweight will feature on the big 'Celtic Clash 10' bill at the Devenish Complex in Belfast on Saturday February 1st and, with a bit of luck, the 'Celtic Clash' series could take place a lot closer to home if he keeps winning. 

    Plans are afoot to bring pro boxing to Yeats County and Gethins knows he has to keep up his streak of victories to ensure he is centre stage for the first fight card in Sligo for over a century.

    The Ballinacarrow BC graduate, who is still trained by Sligo boxing legend Stephen Reynolds, is promoted by another Sligo man in Leonard Gunning. Add to this that his training partner, James Lynch, is also now a pro boxer, means the county is enjoying its best period in the ring in some time.

    'Celtic Clash 10' is headlined by Irish featherweight champion Eric Donovan and also features a clash between light welters Stephen Webb and Francy Luzoho as well as appearances from Bray super bantam Sam Carroll, Dublin welter John Joyce, Cavan light middle Dominic Donegan, Kildare light welter Katelynn Phelan, Waterford super middle Rhys Moran, North Belfast light middle Owen O'Neill, Crumlin light middle Tony McGlynn, and Leixlip light welter Senan Kelly.

    Tickets cost €40 (unreserved) or €55 (ringside) and can be bought from all the boxers on the bill. To buy from Aaron Gethins, contact him through his social media or ring Glen at 0862134987 or on Universe.com.

  • Sligo boxer Aaron Gethins has had his upcoming welterweight bout in Spain on January 23rd postponed.

    The city of Murcia in south-eastern Spain, which was hosting the Celtic Clash 11 fight-night, has just gone back into Covid lockdown, so the event has been cancelled.

    Gethins, who’s won his first four pro bouts to date, hasn’t fought since last February – and repeated attempts to get a fight in intervening months had been hampered by a combination of the pandemic and fighter withdrawals.
