Dublin Star Pierc3 O’Leary Faces Unbeaten Jacob Quinn

Unbeaten Irish sensation Pierce O’Leary will take on fellow undefeated fighter Jacob Quinn on Wednesday’s huge #MTKFightNight event.

Dublin prospect O’Leary (4-0, 1 KO) faces Huddersfield talent Quinn (4-0) on a packed show at Production Park Studios in Wakefield, live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and worldwide on IFL TV.

The battle between the two rising stars means that somebody’s 0 will have to go, and each man is in a very confident mood ahead of the battle.

O’Leary said: “I am really excited. There is not long left so my mind is at ease knowing I’ve got a fight. MTK Global have done a tremendous job and went far and beyond searching for an opponent with a winning record and a great style, and they delivered.

“I had a look at Quinn and he looks good. He’s a southpaw and likes to come forward, so we will have an entertaining fight for the fans tuning in. It’s going to be a fantastic night.”

Quinn added: “I’m very happy to be fighting on the show. Obviously it was short notice so it came unexpected, but I’ve been ready for a while as I’ve been training hard over the last few months.

“I’ll fight anyone right now. I just want the opportunity to see if I can make something out of myself in the sport. Facing another guy coming for the win will definitely bring the best out of me. I literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain, so I’ll be giving it everything I have.”

O’Leary vs. Quinn is part of a huge show on Wednesday, which is headlined by Jono Carroll vs. Maxi Hughes and also features Sean McComb taking on Siar Ozgul, Craig MacIntyre going up against Ishmael Ellis, plus Sahir Iqbal and Maredudd Thomas clashing for the WBC Youth title.

It kicks off a brilliant run of #MTKFightNight events throughout the summer, with the likes of Lewis Crocker, Lee McGregor, Gary Cully, Akeem Ennis Brown, Dan Azeez and more all in action over the coming months.
