Craig McCarthy headlines the night.

There will be sporting history made in Waterford on Saturday, February 17 when the WIT Arena will host Waterford’s first professional boxing show since 1948 and it will see three Waterford professionals in action in front of what should be a large and loud home crowd.
The show is entitled Ring Kings and is being presented by Neil Power Promotions.
There will be eight fights on the night and the whole thing will be headlined by local man, Craig ‘Built2Last’ McCarthy who has gotten his pro career off to a great start in recent months.
He will be joined by fellow Waterford men, Rohan Date, who has returned from the Middle East to compete, and Barry Barnes.
Also competing on the night will be World title challenger Mike Perez, a Cuban who lives in Cork and has won 22 of his 26 professional fights and Celtic champion Eric Donovan from Kildare who is a former European and European Union amateur bronze medalist, who has impressed in his six pro fights so far since switching from the amateur ranks in 2016.
John Joyce, Keane McMahon and Graham McCormack will also be in action on the night.
There will be a full event production to really add to the atmosphere and feel of the arena on the night, also a full bar will be in place. It promises to be a great night.
Tickets cost €40 for bleacher seating and a limited amount of €55 ringside tickets are still available and can be purchased through Ticketstop.ie or from the WIT Arena.
