Paddy “Real Deal” Donovan (8-0, 6 KOs) from Limerick, Ireland, is trained and managed by former middleweight world champion Andy Lee. The stylish southpaw last fought on the Josh Taylor-Jack Catterall undercard in February, knocking out Miroslav Serban in six rounds. Donovan has been out of action rehabbing a hand injury.

Kurt Walker (2-0, 1 KO) from Lisburn, Northern Ireland, turned pro with a first-round knockout on the Taylor-Catterall card, a highly anticipated debut following an amateur run that included a gold medal at the 2019 European Games. He returned April 23 on the Tyson Fury-Dillian Whyte undercard at Wembley Stadium, where he won a four-round decision over Stefan Nicolae.

Kieran Molloy (1-0, 1 KO) a native of Galway, Ireland, also turned pro on the Taylor-Catterall bill and notched a second-round stoppage over Damian Esquisabel. He was scheduled to fight June 18 on the Artur Beterbiev-Joe Smith Jr. undercard, but his opponent tested positive for COVID-19 during fight week. Molloy signed a professional contract with Top Rank after winning an Irish national title last October.

The ESPN+ stream is also scheduled to feature Belfast native Padraig McCrory (13-0, 7 KOs) defending his WBC International Silver super middleweight title in the ten-rounder bout against former world title challenger Marco Antonio Periban (26-5-1, 17 KOs).
