TG4’s Head of Sport, Rónán Ó Coisdealbha said: “TG4 are very pleased to be broadcasting another night of boxing from the National Stadium. Following on from a night of high drama in Castlebar in last December we feel it’s important that boxers should have a national platform to showcase their talents. We’re delighted to be able to bring this to a national free to air audience. ”
Assassin Promotion’s Conor Slater said “’It is fantastic to see professional boxing return to Irish screens. I believe there is a huge appetite for the sport in Ireland, and the exposure boxing has gotten over the past year is testament to the work TG4 have done. It feels like something really special is building, and to have a network partner that believes in Irish sport, is fantastic. I think on March 30th, the Irish public will get another taste of just how brilliant Irish professional boxing is at the moment.”
