Stephen Ormond to face Miguel Jimenez on March 19 in Boston
Saint Patrick’s Clash, a night of fights and music on Saturday, March 19th at the House of Blues in Boston will feature four amazing title fights! Murphys Boxings own, Stephen “The Rock” Ormond (20-2 11KOs) fights in the main event against Marcos ‘El Tigre” Jimenez (21-6 14KOs) for the Lightweight IBF Intercontinental Championship.
With a win, Ormond would not only capture the IBF Intercontinental Championship, but would climb into the top 10 IBF World rankings and take another step closer to fighting for a major world championship. Ormond looks to be on track for a such fight, with the winner of the WBO Lightweight Championship fight between Champion Terry Flanagan and Derry Mathews being the logical choice. Ormond already holds a win against the challenger Mathews and lost by a highly questionable disqualification to the champion Flanagan.
Murphys Boxing newest fighter, undefeated TJ “The Power” Doheny (14-0 10KOs) defends his PABA Super Bantamweight title against tough Gerardo Marin Hernandez (13-3-1 8KOs). Doheny looks to this fight as the start of his climb to the Super Bantamweight Championship of the world, in a hopeful all Irish bout against current IBF Champion Carl Frampton, a man Doheny has already beaten in the amateurs. Doheny a slick boxing southpaw from Ireland, with fast hands and knockout power is a perfect 14 wins in 14 fights, with 10 of those coming by way of KO.
Rounding out the amazing night of championship fights will be two New England title fights. A highly contentious New England lightweight championship fight between Carlos “The Dragon” Candelario (6-1 3KOs) and Matt Doherty (4-1-1 2KOs), which looks on paper to be an action packed fight. Both fighters are out to stake claim to being the best Lightweight in New England. Carlos, a fighter known for his large fan base, is a rising prospect with concussive power in both hands. With fight of the night potential, and fans of both fighters packing the House of Blues, this is one fight not to be missed.
Another New England title fight not to be missed, pits Murphys Boxings own Michael McLaughlin (11-1-1 5KOs) against veteran Shakha Moore of nearby Connecticut, in a battle for the New England Welterweight Championship. McLaughlin from Donegal, Ireland now residing in Dorchester Mass., not only looks to win the N.E. Championship in front of a legion of friends celebrating the Saint Patrick’s day weekend but to position himself for bigger fights. A professional since 2010, McLaughlin hopes to fight for an Irish Title by years end, while securing himself a top ten ranking.
