Donnelly and Hynes expected to serve up real thriller in semis
Stephen Donnelly will step back onto the Ulster championships stage tonight when he tangles with Caoimhin Hynes in what could prove to be the fight of the night this evening in the Dockers Club.
There is a new vibe around the Elite championships this year and the Dockers is expected to be packed for semi-finals night, while it is understood that tickets for the finals at the Ulster Hall next Friday are at a premium.
Welterweight Donnelly, a bronze medallist at the Commonwealth Games four years ago, will be looking to bolster his case for another shot at glory on the Gold Coast in April.
The light-welterweight clash between Bernaldo Marime and Caoimhin Ferguson also looks a tasty affair.
