Connor Coyle To Face Felix Cash
In Battle Of Unbeatens Oct. 8
Irish sensation Connor “The Kid” Coyle will meet fellow
unbeaten middleweight Felix Cash in a ten round contest for
the WBA Intercontinental title Saturday, October 8 at the
sold-out O2 Arena in London.
Coyle-Cash will be broadcast live DAZN and on DAZN PPV in
the UK and Ireland. This exciting matchup serves as the
co-feature to the grudge match between Chris Eubank Jr. and
The reigning NABA middleweight champion, Coyle’s 17-0 with 7
victories by knockout. Ranked 9th in the world by the WBA,
Coyle resides in Derry, Northern Ireland but trains out of
Pinellas Park, FL. On September 17, the 32-year-old
dominated veteran Silverio Ortiz over eight rounds. Prior to
that, he scored a spirited ten round decision against
Antonio Todd to capture the NABA title.
Hailing from Berkshire, United Kingdom, Cash is 15-0 with 10
KO’s. On February 12, Cash won the WBC International
middleweight title by defeating previously unbeaten Magomed
Madiev via ten round decision. The 29-year-old also owns
impressive victories against then-undefeated Denzel Bentley
via third round stoppage and Jack Cullen, who Cash halted in
the 8th. The highly regarded Cash is ranked 4th by the WBO,
10th by the IBF, 12th by the WBA.
“I’m excited about this fight because the winner could be
fighting for a world title in the near future,” said Coyle.
“Its going to be a great night of boxing and there’s going
to be a huge crowd at the O2 Arena plus all the fans
watching around the world on DAZN. This fight is also close
to home (Northern Ireland) for me so my fans and friends
will have the opportunity to see me in the most important
fight of my career.”
Coyle’s promoter, Jody Caliguire of Fire Fist Boxing
Promotions, sees the Cash fight as a perfect opportunity for
Connor to become recognized as a top middleweight.
“This fight is going to steal the show,” said Caliguire.
“This is a huge platform for both Connor and Felix. Both
fighters have undefeated records and are highly ranked but
are looking for that signature victory to get their name
into the world title picture. Connor’s worked incredibly
hard and made many sacrifices for his boxing career. I’m
confident that everybody will know who he is after October
