The Eagle club held a short programme of 10 contests last Saturday night in the Wyatt Hotel in Westport. The host club had seven boxers on the night’s bill and picked up five wins out of those contests, marking a very successful night for the club. The best bout of the night went to the meeting of Kieran Roody from Eagle and Eoin McDonnell from the Ardagh/Crossmolina club in a contest that saw Roody come out on top. The meeting of Patrick Lawrence (Eagle ) and Anthony Leonard (Ardagh/Crossmolina ) was another top encounter with the local again picking up the win. The clash of Damien Joyce (Ballinrobe ) and Patrick Fallon (Monivea ) was another tough three round bout with the Mayo boxer just getting the nod on the night to have his hand raised in victory.
