Kevin Satchell, Con Sheehan Added To Feb 18 Belfast Card

By Elliot Foster

Kevin Satchell and Con Sheehan have each been handed dates for their next fights.

The pair, who campaign at flyweight and heavyweight respectively, have been confirmed as additions to a Frank Warren-promoted card later this month.

Satchell (16-0, 3 KOs) has been out since June last year while Peter Fury-trained Sheehan (4-0, 1 KO) was last in action in November, exclusively live on BoxNation.


And the duo will once again feature on the boxing-only platform on February 18 after MTK Global, who manage the pair, revealed on social media that they would box alongside Jamie Conlan and triple Olympian Paddy Barnes at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast.

The always-entertaining Conlan will face Yader Cardoza for the vacant WBC International Silver flyweight title, which he will be looking to add to his Commonwealth crown, while Barnes participates in his second fight as a pro after a successful yet frustrating debut three months ago.

Elsewhere on the card, Declan Geraghty meets James Tennyson in a clash for the vacant Irish super-featherweight title and Tyrone McKenna defends his Celtic welterweight title against Jake Hanney.

There is action for Phil Sutcliffe Jr., who with a win will go on to face Josh Leather for the vacant IBF Inter-Continental super-lightweight title on May 13 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, while featherweight Marco McCullough and light-heavyweight Steven Ward complete the card on which Lewis Crocker finally makes his highly-anticipated debut.

In other news, Simon Vallily has signed a managerial deal with MTK Global.

The Middlesbrough man (9-1, 2 KOs) is set to return from his first defeat next month after losing out by stoppage to WBC cruiserweight title mandatory challenger Mairis Briedis back in October last year.

Vallily, 31, is a 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medal winner and is excited to begin the next chapter in his career.

“I'm very happy to be part of Team MTK,” he said in a media release.

“All of the fighters they sign continue to get great opportunities and I will relish the ones that come my way.

“Over the next 12 months I will be fully committed to proving that I am the best cruiserweight domestically, then setting my sights on world honours.”
