Irish Boxer Making Professional Debut May 19; Battle at the Bay a Massive Success

Donegal native, Micheal "OWENS"  McLaughlin, will make his American professional debut at the Dorchester Armory on May 19.  McLaughlin has had 100 fights over his amateur career and has won a numerous titles at both county, provincial, and national level.  In 2005 McLaughlin fought against a Boston select while being a part of an Irish golden gloves team.  He won on that night and his opponent from that night Simeon Dunwell  will also be fighting on this same show in Dorchester on May 19.  McLaughlin's professional record is one win and one draw.  He is a very exciting prospect and is expected to do well in America.

The Battle at the Bay Fundraising night back in March was a huge success both on the night, with more than 2,000 in attendance, and also after the accounting was done.  There was $52,500 raised for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.  The organizers would like to thank everybody involved in making the event such a huge success.  In fact, there will be another white collar boxing night for next year.  If you fancy youself in the ring please get in touch with the organizers.  Thanks again from Mark Porter, Eamonn Kelly, Paddy McDevitt, Kevin Doherty, Peter O'Malley, Mark Vaz.
