His next challenge will be getting past the 37-year-old from Kazakhstan, Dauren Yeleussinov. While Yeleussinov is 14 years older than Walsh, he still presents a unique puzzle. Like Callum, Yeleussinov is a southpaw who carries power. Walsh, who is typically an aggressive fighter, plays well into Yeleussinov’s counterpunching style. A note on Yeleuissnov’s stance is he does have his left hand relatively low, so expect the lead right hook to be a part of Callum’s game plan heading into this fight. While Yeleuissinov is no pushover and has only won via decision once, Walsh is expected to continue his dominant victories.

Also on the card is undefeated Irish Super Featherweight Feargal McCrory (15-0), who faces off against Carlos Carlson (25-7) for the WBA Inter-Continental title.

Hometown favorite Rashat “The Albanian Bear” Mati (14-0) will also look to add another victory to his undefeated record. The 25-year-old from Staten Island, NY, will face off against Irving Macias (14-4) in the super lightweight division. With quick and sharp punching abilities, Mati has the potential to steal the show and propel his name into more conversations.

In the light heavyweight division, Ireland’s Joseph Ward (10-1) is riding an impressive 10-fight win streak; he steps into the ring against Derrick Webster, a seasoned veteran with 34 fights under his belt. With back-to-back TKO victories, Ward is looking to extend his streak and solidify his position in the light heavyweight division.

In another exciting bout, Cletus Seldin (27-1) will defend his undefeated streak since 2017 against Jose Angulo (16-7). A former NABA Super lightweight champion, Seldin has proven himself against formidable opponents like Zab Judah and Yves Ulysse Jr.

Giovanni Scuderi (9-0) vs Brandon Carmack (7-3-2) Contested at heavyweight.
