Buckley’s Jeremy McCleary, a graduate of White River High School, returns to the ring Saturday, Nov. 7, when he faces Health Cline in a featured undercard bout at Battle at the Boat 103 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma.

The 21-year-old McCleary brings a record of 7-1-0 into the featherweight contest and is coming off a unanimous decision over Benjamin Vinson in his most recent bout on Aug. 15.

“Jeremy made his professional debut two years ago at Battle at the Boat when he was only 19 years old and is definitely an up-and-coming young fighter,” promoter Brian Halquist said.

McCleary was a three-time Junior Golden Gloves champion and posted an amateur record of 50-19 before turning pro.

Tickets are available through the EQC box office and all Ticket Master outlets. Doors open at 6 p.m. with preliminary bouts starting at 7 p.m.
