Waterford’s Dylan Moran celebrates after he defeated Geiboord Omier at the Middleton Arena in his second professional boxing match.
I think it’s fair to say that the professional boxing career of Kilmacthomas man, Dylan Moran (22) is starting to take off, big time.
After a wonderful career in the world of kickboxing, Dylan made his debut in the professional ranks earlier this year with a win in Manchester and in front of a full house at the Middleton Arena, once again in Manchester, on Friday week last he was back in the ring for his second bout as a professional and once again he didn’t disappoint his huge travelling support from Waterford or his growing fanbase in England as he made light work of his fight which was the main event on the evening’s card.
The Waterford man came out of the blocks in great style against Barcelona based Nicaraguan Geiboord Omier and a barage of body shots followed by a lovely left uppercut had his opponent in all sorts of trouble before the patrons had barely settled into their seats.
There was no great surprise then when referee Darren Sarginson called a halt to proceedings with 50 seconds of the opening round still to go, to loud cheers of delight from Moran’s supporters as he stretched his record to 2-0.
Manager and promoter, Kieran Farrell, certainly isn’t letting the Déise man rest on his laurels as he’s back in action this coming Friday as he makes his professional debut on Irish soil when he is part of a decent looking card at the Devenish Complex in Belfast, where he will take on Hungarian, Pal Olah.
Also on the card will be a Celtic Nations Title fight between Padraig McCrory and Jade Karam and the meeting of Gerard Healy and Sean McGlinchey.
Once again a big crowd is expected to travel from Waterford. Tickets are from £25 and are available by ringing 04890301154.
Best of luck Dylan.
