“I am looking forward to it and I missed being in the limelight. I took time out to be a dad to my son and now I am ready to return,” said Walsh.
“I have signed with Mark Dunlop because he keeps his boxers busy and I will be fighting in Belfast on May 10 and June 28. The aim is to stay active and then go for the Irish title.”
The popular stylist seemed to have grown disillusioned following a comprehensive win over Robert Studzinski on the Frampton-Molitor undercard. New manager Mark Dunlop is part of a vibrant small hall scene in and around Belfast that has been responsible for keeping many local boxers ticking over. Mark is working closely with heavyweight Martin Rogan and has some exciting plans for his growing roster. That now includes Galway’s Alan Donnellan as well as James Tennyson, Declan Trainor and Daniel McShane, all of whom feature on May 10.
“Dee is a talented boy and he will go far. He has joined my ever growing stable of fighters and we will be looking to keep him busy,” said Dunlop.
“I have also signed a promotional deal with Martin Rogan and there will be big news about Rogan very soon,” he added.
