'I Am Not A Brit' - Irish Boxer Geraghty Corrects Frank Warren During BT Sport Press Conference

'I Am Not A Brit' - Irish Boxer Geraghty Corrects Frank Warren During BT Sport Press Conference

The Royal Albert Hall will play host to Archie Sharp and Declan Geraghty’s exciting fight on Friday night, live on BT Sport.

The Dubliner is fighting for the WBO European rankings title against the undefeated Sharp on a card that includes the return of Nicola Adams as well as Daniel Dubois and Ebenezer Tetteh’s Commonwealth title fight.

Coming into the bout, the Frank Warren trained boxer has questioned Geraghty's chin while the promoter earned himself a stiff rebuke when he mistakenly said the card would decide "who is the best of the Brits."

Geraghty, who lost out to Marco McCullough last May, was quick to correct him: "I am not a Brit, thank you. I hope you have a good plan for me."

"I am a proud Irish man."
