I will be attending although I hope he fights a better fighter than Vanda There really is nothing like the atmosphere of a Duddy fight at the "world's greatest arena", the combination of an exciting fighter and the big city make it electric. I went to the Campas, Cuevas, and Bonsante fights. I really hope Andy Lee is on the card. An irish american fighter who I believe is from Hells Kitchen named Mcdermott might be on the card. It will also be fun to see Wlad live plus he will draw a lot of Eastern European fans, which inevitably will fight with Duddy fans.

Are a New York Irish American? Will you travel to Ohio to cheer Duddy on against Pavlik. I'm from Belfast, but I hope to be there myself.

Yea Irish American, I go to a lot of the fights from Boston to Ny. After Micky Ward retired I instantly began to follow Duddy from very early on his career, which I believe many Irish Americans are doing now. Duddy and Pavlik will be a big fight but I can't possibly see it being anywhere other than the east coast. By the way if your interested you can check out a new book called Irish Thunder the Hard Life and Times of Micky Ward if your interested in Irish American boxing. The irish have such a rich history in boxing in the U.S., but unfornately it is a thing of the past.

Thank you ml, I'm very interested in Irish-American boxing. I will try to get my hands on a copy of that book. I was a bought a recently published book called Legends Of Irish Boxing for Christmas. I cant recommend it as I am yet to read it, but it has grabbed a lot of favorable attention and critical acclaim in the local press.

Don,t worry mate, the Irish fans will respect your national anthem,even though I dont respect you or your ill advised comments. The middleweight title is on loan until Duddy comes to rip it away from "chinny" Pavlik.
