SBG's James Gallagher is set to compete in a charity boxing match at Cage Legacy 10 in Dublin on December 1st.
The Bellator MMA star will be facing promising young amateur boxer Will Hamill.
"I’m training for this as I would a normal fight, if not, even harder, as a lot of people will be there to watch this fight as James is very well known in this game," said Hamill.
"My thoughts on James are all good. He’s an inspiration to me and to many young fighters like myself, as I’m only 15. I have followed his fights for the last few years and really look up to him."
It is a massive opportunity for Hamill, who has only just recently began his boxing career, to step into a ring with someone like Gallagher
"I have competed in the Dublin Leagues and Dublin Championships coming 2nd in both last year. I am aiming to win both and go onto the nationals this year. I only started to fight about a year ago but have always trained in some sort of fighting after I got the love of boxing from my dad and my older brother, who is also fighting on this Cage Legacy card."
This will be Gallagher's first time stepping into the ring following the first loss of his career coming at the hands of Ricky Bandejas at Bellator 204.
Féileacain.ie charity being supported by James Gallagher vs. Will Hamill and Cage Legacy 10 will happen at the Good Council GAA club in Dublin on December 1.
