Buru and Nash are National Junior Cadet Champions

image preview

Four Mayo boxers were in action in the 2013 National Junior Cadets semi and finals last weekend. Eric Nash (Knockmore BC) was to participate in his semi final in the 52kg division against Peter McCarton (Bishop Kelly BC, Tyrone) but the northern boxer withdrew from the championships. Nash was up against a good clean puncher Airijus Vitlipas (St Davids, Naas) in the final on Saturday afternoon. Nash and his father and coach had the luxury of watching the Polish boxer in his semi final on Friday evening and the important notes and video was taken to view later that night. The homework was done, the hard training was complete and when Nash stepped into the ring at 2pm on Saturday he was simply outstanding throughout the three rounds and caught the Naas boy every time he lead a punch and missed which was quite often. Vitlipas was considered a quality boxer by various club coaches after his impressive semi final win but Nash made him look quite ordinary and the Knockmore boxer went on to win his second personal title and the clubs second in their short five year history. The three judges gave all rounds to Nash and he won on a unanimous decision 3-0.
