These are busy times for Waterford professional boxer, Dylan ‘The Real Deal’ Moran (23).
After three wins from his first three professional fights in 2017, the Kilmacthomas man makes his 2018 debut this Friday night when he will fight as part of the ‘Little Big Men’ show at the Village Hotel in Bury near Manchester.
Dylan will be hoping to make it four wins from four when he takes on Hungarian fighter, Gergo Vari who is a seasoned professional with a record of 21 wins and 19 losses.
Then on March 3, Dylan will make his Irish professional debut when he will fight on the Ireland’s Last Man Standing show at the National Stadium in Dublin. This show will be televised and the uptake on tickets has been really strong so far.
Moran, a former World Kickboxing Champion, is hoping for a big 2018, under the guidance of manager and trainer, Kieran Farrell.
Dylan, who is based in Manchester, hopes for a huge turnout on the night, and promises an action packed outing.
“We have been waiting for the homecoming and what a show to have your homecoming on. The opportunity arose and we were more than delighted to take it. I had my first four fights in England, but I need to be fighting in front of the Irish people and the Irish fans. This gives me a chance to perform in front of them and my home crowd too.
“There will be a lot coming up from Waterford, it’s shaping up to be a great night and I am looking forward to showing them what I can do.
“Do you know what, it’s after giving me a real buzz. I can’t wait to be fighting in the National Stadium.”.
“I am looking for a big year in 2018. This will be my first fight over here and Kieran has big plans for me, so I hope to stay busy and I want the Irish title by the end of the year. That’s the main goal for this year, I want that Irish title.”
