Peter McDonagh Back From Ban, May 12 In Bolton

By Elliot Foster

Peter McDonagh will fight again next month after having his British Boxing Board of Control ban lifted early.

The former three-weight Irish champion is set to come back on May 12, exclusively live on Channel 5.

McDonagh, 40, was banned by the Board in the wake of the pre-fight antics when he beat Shayne Singleton last September, as part of the undercard to Hughie Fury’s unsuccessful world title challenge against then-WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker.


But ‘The Connemara Kid’ will make his comeback on the same card as Fury’s return against Sam Sexton.

Fury is challenging the British champion for the Lonsdale belt at the Premier Suite at the home of Bolton Wanderers, the Macron Stadium –– and McDonagh (28-28-1, 3 KOs) is set to come up against international opposition on the card.

German-based Italian Davide Doria will be the man in the opposite corner on the night, with the hope that a fringe title can be secured and added to the clash.

The 34-year-old unsuccessfully challenged for the vacant Global Boxing Union super-welterweight title as recently as last November and was in action in March when he scored a unanimous decision victory over Adnan Zilic.

Also on the card, there is action for ex-Team GB star Savannah Marshall as well as Yusuf Safa, Reece Cartwright, George Brennan, Jake Barton and Reece McMillan.
