Eamonn O’Kane held a public workout at St Canice’s ABC, Dungiven yesterday morning ahead of Saturday night’s ‘Time is Now’ show in Lavey Community Centre.

The Banagher middleweight who defends his IBF Inter-Continental title against unbeaten Englishman, Lewis Taylor in the County Londonderry village, claims he’s fully focussed on ‘doing a good job’ in front of his home support.

“The winner of this fight goes up to No.3 in the IBF rankings so I could put myself into a mandatory position to fight for the world title after this,” claimed O’Kane.

“We’re looking to capitalise on everything that’s happening at the top of the division and I’ve been dotting the ‘I’s and crossing the ‘t’s and Paddy Fitzpatrick has completely reformed Eamonn O’Kane this time around. Don’t get me wrong there will be times on Saturday when you see the old Eamonn O’Kane but it will be behind a highly educated boxing sytem.”
