BURTONPORT BOXER DUFFY HEADS TO GERMANY FOR CRUCIAL BOUT

first_imgDonegal middleweight Joseph Duffy sets off into the unknown this weekend as he heads to Southern Germany to take on Romanian opponent Ionut Trandafir Ilie. Duffy has enjoyed a seamless transition from MMA to professional boxing and boasts a 100% record after winning all of his five bouts.Duffy boxes under the tutelage of John Tandy and Adam Brearley and has gained experience from sparring with the likes of George Groves and James Degale. Duffy was born in Donegal but spent most of his childhood in Wales but regards himself as Irish and is very proud of his Donegal roots, so much so that he has a tattoo of Dun Na nGall on his back and a Donegal crest on his boxing shorts.Duffy’s career is closely followed by those who know him well in the Rosses area and a victory this weekend in the hostile environment of Ravensburg Germany will reiterate to everyone that he has a bright future in the world of professional boxing.Duffy attracts large support from the Irish community in London and it is expected that fans from Wales, Donegal and London will travel to Germany to cheer on the mauler from Meenbannad.Good luck Joe.   BURTONPORT BOXER DUFFY HEADS TO GERMANY FOR CRUCIAL BOUT was last modified: September 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:boxingBrwalerdonegalGermanyirishJoseph DuffyLondon basedMeenbannadnewsSportlast_img
