Two of Ireland's most popular stars will square off on the March 12th undercard of Sergio Martinez's defense against Sergei Dzinziruk which will be broadcast on HBO. John Duddy who is coming off a recent loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will match up against Irish prospect Andy Lee who is trained by the legendary Emmanuel Steward. The bout will take place at the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut.
Lee is once beaten suffering an upset defeat at the hands of Bryan Vera but has rebounded with an impressive winning streak. Lee looks to establish himself as a legitimate contender against compatriot. The bout coincides with the St. Patrick's Day week and is certain to be a popular ticket among the large Irish community in New England.
