Paddy Barnes will fight on the same card as Michael Conlan when the latter makes his professional debut in Madison Square Garden on St. Patrick's Day.
The two-time Olympic bronze medallist will make his professional debut in the Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast on November 5th, and has revealed on Twitter that he'll also fight on Conlan's card in March.
Both Belfast boxers turned professional after controversial defeats at the Rio 2016 Olympics, and Irish expectations for the duo will be high.
Irish boxing fans will be hopeful of a large event in either Belfast or Dublin next year.
