Clan O’Connor Ready for a Show of Force Tomorrow Night
at Boston House of Blues
The City of Boston has ‘Danny O Fever’, as few tickets remain for junior welterweight prospect Danny O’Connor’s 10-round rumble with New York’s Daniel “The Hudson Valley Kid” Sostre (11-5-1). The pair will meet as the main event of a Boston vs. New York fight card tomorrow night (May 24) at the Boston House of Blues. O’Connor (16-1, 4 KOs) will enjoy the full support of “Clan O’Connor”, his army of fans, as well as that of de-facto manager and Irish rock superstar Ken Casey of The Dropkick Murphys. Here’s what the Boston newspapers are saying about O’Connor, Casey and this unique and exciting event tomorrow night:
