GB boxer Thomas Hodgson will be in action, boxing for his home club. He spoke to Boxing News.

Looking forward to boxing on your club show?
Ireland have got a team coming over… I can’t really wait. They’re always electric. With all my friends and family coming, the turn out’s big. I’m boxing three weeks later as well in a tournament in Belarus so it’s all good prep for that really. It’ll be good to fight in front of friends and family who haven’t see us box locally since I don’t know when.
