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.
Last Friday evening Michelle Chambers from Castlebar Boxing Club claimed the 54kg national intermediate title after a nail biting bout with Rosmary Doherty from Carndonagh Boxing Club in Donegal. Chambers got off to a great start with some great overhand rights to Doherty's head, and led at the end of the first round, 5-2. However in the second Doherty produced a great round of long range boxing to keep Chambers away, the score at the end of the second was 6-6. Chambers, now on the back foot, was feeling the pressure, the third round started the same way the second ended with Doherty in the ascendancy.
