Ronnie Clark v David Oliver-Joyce: European title clash on Aug 24

Ringside 03/07/2018

The unbeaten David Oliver-Joyce will challenge Scotland’s Ronnie Clark for the European super-featherweight title on the MTK Glasgow City show at Emirates Arena on August 24.

Elite Irish amateur Joyce (7-0-KO6) was last seen stopping Jordan Ellison in April and has been handed a shot at Clark (21-4-2-KO10), who shocked Zelfa Barrett to win the title in February.

Also on a colossal bill at a venue which will host a boxing event for first the first time in years is a local hero in former Commonwealth and European champion Willie Limond.

Super-lightweight Limond (40-5-KO12) comes up against dangerous southpaw Darragh Foley (15-2-KO8) with both men preparing to make their debuts under the MTK Global banner.

The final strand of a triple headline sees the ever-popular Stephen ‘The Rock’ Ormond (25-5-KO13) face a recent MTK Global signing in Ghana’s George Ashie (28-4-1-KO20).

Former European champion Ormond is determined to force his way back towards the top and was impressive last time out in outclassing Nelson Altamirano. Ashie is looking to make an impact on his UK debut.

The undercard features a host of emerging local talents; including David Brophy, Kieran Smith, Stephen Tiffney, Tommy Philbin, Chris Wood and Aiden McGlynn.
