The vacant European Featherweight Title

Ryan Walsh and Dennis Ceylan will contest the vacant European Featherweight Title in Frederikshavn, Denmark on Saturday 15th October live on BoxNation.

After starting the year with an impressive KO victory over Darren Traynor at York Hall, mandatory challenger James Tennyson was then dispatched in similar fashion at the Copper Box back in April.

Walsh will be looking to make it a treble to end to 2016 with a bang and capture the vacant European crown.

It’s the next natural step for Walsh, who finds himself sitting inside the top 15 with the WBO & IBF, waiting patiently should a World Title opportunity present itself in the not so distant future.

Unbeaten Dane Denis Ceylan bagged home advantage for the fight when promoters, the Sauerlands won the purse bid and right to stage the fight.

Ceylan scored a second round stoppage victory over Walter Estrada, when he stepped up last time out back in December.

The contest represents Ceylan’s maiden professional Title fight and first over twelve rounds.

Home town hero Ceylan will enjoy a height advantage over Walshy in what is sure to be an intriguing fight.

"You expect a European title fight to be hard, and it should be hard, but I try not to worry about my opponent, I make them worry about me. The Danish fans can expect the best Ryan Walsh possible on the night, and it will have to be," explained Walsh.

"Ryan is a good fighter and I have a lot of respect for him. He is a skilled boxer, like me, who will do everything to become European Champion," revealed Ceylan.

Walsh added: "This is the biggest fight of my career and it would mean everything for me to win. I’ve won the English and British titles and the European title is is the next step for me towards World honours.’’
