Darren O’Neill will renew acquaintances with Russia’s Rio 2016 Olympic champion Evgeny Tischenko at Dublin’s National Stadium tomorrow evening.
Vladimir Nikitin, a bronze medallist at Rio 2016, is also in action for Russia versus Galway lightweight Patrick Mongan.
Darren has beaten Tischenko in the past, but the Russian heavyweight decisioned the Kilkenny southpaw at the 2015 Europeans to level the scoring at 1-1.
Ireland, France, Germany, Italy and Russia meet in a four-day bank holiday Round Robin at the home of Irish boxing.
