Undefeated super feather prospect Bernard Dunne headlines a Brian Peters show tonight at the National Stadium in Dublin with seasoned light middle Jim "The Pink Panther" Rock lending chief support. Back in Ireland after a successful trip to Italy in April, Dunne, 20-0 (12) faces California's David "El Finito" Martinez, 15-1-1 (3), a former WBC Youth Super Flyweight titlist.
Dunne fought the first fourteen bouts of his career in the states until a close call against Adrian Valdez two years ago sent the Dublin man back to his homeland. After six good wins in Ireland, Germany and Italy, if Dunne is victorious against the American opponent tonight in Dublin, it may herald another US campaign by the lanky boxer.
Another Dubliner, Jim Rock, 26-4 (7), will be looking to capture the vacant Irish Middleweight title against Lee Murtagh, 19-9-1 (0), of Leeds, England.
