Raphoe ABC host a visiting team from the Paddy Brennan Boxing Academy in Ludlow on Saturday night in a major tournament at Deele College.
The tournament is a return leg from November when the Raphoe BC were edged out 9-7 by the Paddy Hyland Academy in Birmingham.
Brennan, whose dad hailed from Lifford, and his club received an MBE in 2015, the highest possible award for voluntary service to over 2,000 young people in the UK.
The visitors will be under the guidance of the flamboyant Paddy Farrell, who has strong Dublin connections.
The home side will have the likes of former Irish champion Eoin McGarrell, Dennis Lafferty and Danny Duggan in tow.
Guest boxers like Matthew McCole (Dungloe) and Convoy duo Bryan McNamee and Lee Boyd are in to add some steel to the Raphoe ranks.
Donegal Boxing President Peter O’Donnell, one of the Raphoe club’s founder members, is looking forward to a big night of action.
“The last meeting was close and we’re expecting more of the same on Saturday week, “said O’Donnell.
“The night will feature Ulster, Irish and English champions. It promises to be a very competitive evening of boxing between which will further strengthen the relationship between both clubs.”
Patrons are asked to be in their seats early as a bumper crowd is expected.
Admission is keenly priced at €8 and €5 for under 16 years and OAPs.
