With the GAA action on the playing fields of Derry almost wrapped up for another year, The Elk Toomebridge becomes the focus of attention as Club Derry presents: ‘Fight Night’ 2013.

Featuring a range of intriguing contests involving sports men and women as well as local politicians and well known GAA figures, the fundraising boxing event is sure to capture community interest.

With eleven fights on the bill, the evening features many potential highlights, including: The ’93 Champions Bout, which sees former Derry team-mates Johnny McGurk and Kieran McKeever go head to head; ‘The Battle of the Refs’, pitting Ballinderry’s Martin McErlane against well known hurling and football official Alan Nash and Derry senior footballer Aidan McAlynn taking on Lissan’s Oran Donnelly.

The evening also features the inspirational story of local man Gary ‘The Miracle Man’ Higgins who overcame serious illness to be able to compete at a high level in a recent ‘white collar boxing’ event for cancer charity. Higgins goes toe to toe with Derry u21 footballer, Nathan Rocks.

Club Derry ‘Fight Night’ takes place at 7.30pm on Friday 15 November at The Elk. Further information including details of all the fights is available on
