We are excited to announce that Big Joe Egan will be here on Saturday 14th March at our Spring Afternoon Racing.
Born and bred in Dublin, Big Joe, as he is affectionately known, got his first ring baptism of fire when he fought the national junior champion Steve Collins. In Joe's second fight against Collins he proved that he'd come on in leaps and bounds. By the age of 24 he had recorded over 80 wins, 7 Irish titles and he was a Golden Gloves Champion. Joe fought 11 times wearing the green vest of Ireland and he attracted even more attention when he went the distance with Lennox Lewis and beat the future WBA champion Bruce Seldon. The fight had it all and enthralled those at the ringside.
As part of the day you can also enter a raffle on behalf of Iconic Car Company to win a stunning Ford Focus RS in Ultimate Green! To enter simply click here
Big Joe will be around the Racecourse on Saturday for our spring racing from 4:30pm until 7:30pm.
