It’ll be Belfast vs Dublin at Ulster Hall on Friday.

Belfast junior welterweight Tyrone McKenna is looking to show his class on Friday against Dublin’s Darragh Foley when the two meet at Ulster Hall on ESPN+.

McKenna (18-1-1, 6 KO) says he’s familiar with Foley (17-3-1, 9 KO) and ready to look good.

“I know what kind of fighter Foley is. I’ve watched him live. He does some things well but a lot of things badly and I think I can exploit them,” McKenna said. “I won’t dive into tactics but I believe I’m the better fighter all-round in every department. I’m fully confident.

“From what I’ve seen, he’s a big character. He seems to be eccentric and loud — a bit like myself — so it could be an exciting press conference. He’s from Dublin and proud of it and I’m from Belfast and proud of it so the fans are in for a treat inside and outside the ring.

“Hopefully you see a smart, calm, collected and more complete Tyrone McKenna than you’ve ever seen. I’m training very hard and I showed my boxing skills in my last fight — albeit against a lesser opponent. I’ll build on that and I think you’ll see a real masterclass of a display from me that night.”
