Tom Loeffler, the big boss at 360 Promotions, is buzzing about Walsh’s return to The Garden. After Walsh dazzled the crowd last November with a smashing performance, Loeffler couldn’t wait to slot him in for a headline act on New York’s favorite Irish weekend. Yeleussinov, with his iron fists, is expected to be a serious hurdle for Walsh in this main event. And stay tuned, because they’re also cooking up an undercard featuring some of the finest fighters from New York City.

Joel Fisher of MSG Entertainment is equally thrilled about Walsh’s return. He’s lining up to be one of Ireland’s greats, following in the footsteps of legends like John Duddy, Andy Lee, Matthew Macklin, and Michael Conlan. With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, expect a sea of Irish fans turning up to cheer on their new hero.

Remember Walsh’s headlining act at The Mecca of Boxing last November? He left a lasting impression on the crowd, taking down local hotshot Ismael Villarreal. This year’s March 15 event marks Walsh’s second St. Patrick’s Day headlining fight, following his 2023 triumph over Wesley Tucker in Boston.

2023 was a knockout year for Walsh, clinching four victories, three by way of knockout. He even snagged the Prospect of the Year title from the World Boxing Council (WBC) and was crowned UFC FIGHT PASS Athlete of the Year.

Dauren Yeleussinov, hailing from Kayindy, Kazakhstan and brother of Olympic champ Daniyar Yelussinov, has made Brooklyn his second home. Last seen in the ring in March 2023, he blasted Bakhrom Payazov with a second-round knockout. With seven of his ten KOs happening within two rounds, Yeleussinov is a force to be reckoned with.
