    I see both Dennis McCann and Pierce o'Leary have moved from the ibox gym in London to train under Joe McNally in liverpool.

    I thought both fighters where coming on very well under Ibox's tutelage.

    any idea why the change has happened?

    Are both still managed by Francis?

    I reckon that it's agreed by all party's. Mcnallys a decent guy, maybe McCann & O'leary aren't living the life where they are and are getting sidetracked by distractions

    McCann comes across like a Poundland McGregor, he was incredibly lucky in his last fight and carried himself like a moron before it.

    I think that McCann is now managed by Lee Eaton. Not sure about O’Leary.

    I saw that O’Leary put out on his socials that he’s on the card at the copperbox but there was no mention of him being in it on the press release from Queensberry. He wasn’t listed as fighting on the card on Boxrec either when I looked at it last week, so I’m unsure if he is actually on the card or not.
    Frank Warren said in an interview on TalkSPORT that McCann was fighting on a show in Birmingham in March. I suspect it is against Brad Strand for the British title but that is just a guess by me, putting two and two together after watching an interview with McCann on Boxing Social yesterday.

    Surprised McNally has any room left in his gym for all these incomers, he really has become the flavour of the month. Even Shanny is there now haha

    O'leary was advertising ticket sales on good Instagram account, so surely he's on the card??

    I will say though, the other two big names from Ireland in his division, are both with matchroom. That'd be Lewis crocker and Paddy Donovan. I'd fancy o'leary over both. Although both fighters are excellent to
