Billy Walsh - Ireland v France

The Ireland Olympic men's boxing team will take on French opposition at the Rochestown Park Hotel on May 3rd and in the National Stadium in Dublin on May 5th. Darren O'Neill, Adam Nolan, Paddy Barnes, John Joe Nevin and Michael Conlon will all fight on the night. The Cork event has been arranged after a show in Millstreet was cancelled earlier this month reportedly due to a lack of tickets sales and the withdrawl of Katie Taylor due to injury.
