Ronnie Clark, Dundee’s IBF European super-featherweight boxing champion, is set to defend his title at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena on Friday August 24.
Ronnie will meet Irishman David Oliver Joyce on an MTK promotion.
Joyce, from Mullingar, has boxed professionally only seven times but is undefeated and has six stoppage wins.
As an amateur he competed at the 2016 Olympics and won two European Championship golds.
Ten of Clark’s 21 victories have come inside the distance. He has had two draws and four losses.
He won the title with a points success over Zelfa Barrett at London’s York Hall on February 24.
Ronnie is training hard for the contest and is expected to take a large support through to Glasgow for the bout.
Meanwhile, Dundee super-welter Paul Kean, whose unbeaten eight bout record includes a triumph in a Boxing Union Ireland Celtic title contest against Jay Byrne in Glasgow’s Crowne Plaza hotel in May, will box for the Scottish title at the same venue on September 14.
He will take on Stefan Sanderson (Johnstone) who has one inside the distance win in his four undefeated contests.
Dundee lightweight Sean McKiddie, who is regarded as a very good prospect, will make his professional debut on the same bill.
