After a two year sabbatical from the sport Dublin’s Oisin ‘Gael Force’ Fagan returns to active duty this coming Saturday, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London, England, where he and Chester’s Chris Goodwin will battle it out for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Inter-Continental Lightweight Title.
Fagan, who during his career has been in with some of the top stars of the sport, including Amir Khan and Paul Spadafora, has surprised many pundits with his decision to mark his return to the fray, with a championship bout against a young and highly rated prospect such as Goodwin.
Speaking from his home in Dublin a seriously determined sounding Fagan said.“I’m just pleased that the fight is finally going ahead, even though I’ve had only four or five days to prepare.
They may think that this coming together so quickly may catch me on the hop, but it wont, I train every day, I don’t take any time off between fights, so if they’re relying on that they’ve better think again.
I’ve fought some of the top names in the sport including a couple of World Champions, so even though I’m fighting away again, fighting in England against an Englishman doesn’t bother me.
I’m coming to win you know, the WBF title is coming back to Ireland with me.”
