The visiting boxers from Ulster took the majority of the contests in the inter-provincal tournament held in the Conway Gym and Fitness Centre in Swinford last Friday night. The opening four contests on the night involved eight Mayo boxers as support bouts for the main contests. The best contest of the night was awarded to the meeting of Vicky Harraghy (Swinford/Connacht) and Grainne Gallagher (Twin Towns/Ulster) with the visiting girl taking the girl two, 46kg contest 3-0. There were wins on the night for Chloe Moore (Swinford/Connacht) in the girl two 42kg grade, Shannon Sweeney (St Anne’s/Connacht), and Aoife Hennigan (Swinford/Connacht) in the intermediate 63kg grade.
There will be plenty of Mayo interest in the action in the National Stadium in Dublin where the IABA Elite National Championships finals will be taking place tonight. St Anne’s Ray Moylette will be up in the fourth bout of the night when he takes on Ross Hickey in what is potentially the bout of the night in the light-welterweight (64kg) grade. Moylette is the defending European champion and ranked number eight in the world, while Hickey is a two time elite champion and is defending his title from last year. Moylette, who had plenty of injury problems last year which curtailed his chances of making it to the Olympics, is back in top form this year and over the past two weekends saw off Patrick Mongan 14-7 in his quarter-final victory and Sean Duffy 18-10 in his semi-final win last Friday night.
