Despite being 53, the Dubliner says he is still open for the bout to happen –

“Nigel’s camp are still serious about going ahead with it, I’ve applied for my professional boxing licence which I have been successful in receiving. I’m now a licensed professional, if they come up with a deal and if the money is there it’ll happen, I’ve no other reason to fight.”

Weather there’s a demand for the fight remains to be seen. Im sure most boxing fans would be happy to see these two legends stay retired and healthy.

The ‘Celtic Warrior‘ is still the only Irish fighter in history to hold world titles at two different weight classes.
