There were three boxing tournaments held in Mayo last week in Ardnaree, Achill, and Castlebar and this weekend they keep coming with tournaments hosted by Ardagh Boxing Club in Hiney’s tonight Friday, January 17. That will be followed by a Geesala Boxing Club tournament in the High Chaparral on Saturday night and a Charlestown Boxing Club tournament in CBD Sports Complex on Sunday afternoon.
The High Chaparral was the venue for the Geesala tournament last Saturday night and a packed venue enjoyed some enthralling boxing. The best contest of the night was the female bout between National Champions Ciara Ginty (Geesala) and Saibh Green (Ballinacarrow). Ginty’s straight clean punching could not penetrate the strong defence of the visiting boxer and Green scored with strong body punches when in close contact. It was Green’s hand that was raised after the three rounds much to the disappointment of Ginty’s many supporters. Another absorbing contest was the final bout of the night between local boy Darren Timlin and John G Lawrence (Eagle club). Timlin picked off his opponent with good fast punches throughout the contest and got the decision he deserved at the final bell. Local boy Mikey Conroy’s first contest in the ring on his return from illness was against last season’s Connacht champion Cíaran Brogan (Knockmore) and Conroy boxed brilliantly to obtain a well deserved unanimous decision over a stronger opponent in the boy two 36kg grade. Conroy has a bright future between the ropes and is a boxer to watch out for in the coming years. Other winners on the night were Finian Carolan in the boy one 36kg, Oisin Lally in the boy two 39kg, James Doran
St Anne’s Boxing club held a very successful tournament in the Peter Callaghan Centre last Saturday night, January 12, winning 10 of the 16 contests on the bill.
