Tampa, FL (August 17, 2023) – NABA middleweight champion Connor “The Kid” Coyle looks for his 20th win in as many fights when he battles 17-1 Joey Bryant of Memphis, TN Saturday evening at The Blind Tiger in Biloxi, MS.
Training out of Pinellas Park, FL under Florida Boxing Hall of Famer Jim McLaughlin and residing in Derry, Northern Ireland, Saturday’s showdown with Bryant will be Coyle’s third title defense. The 33-year-old Coyle is 19-0 with 8 knockouts and ranked #6 by the WBA.
