Josh O’Reilly is boxing before a home crowd later this month for the first time in his professional career. It will be his third pro fight, but the first in Ontario.

O’Reilly and fellow Steeltown Boxing Club fighter Kevin Higson are on the March. 28 card at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga.

The larger venue means a little more pressure, says O’Reilly, 24, but it’s not intimidating.

“It makes me work harder,” says O’Reilly.

The 24-year-old super featherweight, who has won both his pro fights, will take on Diego Vicente Perez (8-6-1, six KO).

Super welterweight Higson, 26, is 5-0 in his pro career.

“It will be 6-0 by the end of the month,” he says confidently.

Higson is fighting Junmar Emon (6-1, two KO) that night. He’s hoping for a Canadian title shot within the next two years.
