Conor Wallace of Sacred Heart Boxing Club picked up the Irish title at the National Stadium at the weekend. Wallace put on a great performance picking up the 63kg title in a very close final that went to the wire with a score-line of 9 points to 8 in the Newry boxers favour. Daryl Byrne (Grangecon) played his part in an epic final which in fact was Conor’s 2nd Irish Title previously winning an All Ireland crown as an eleven year old. Wallace also picked up mid-Ulster and Ulster titles to get to the semi-final stage when he breezed through on a score-line of 8-3. This capped an excellent season for Wallace who last year lost out in the All Ireland Cadet final. He will have a chance to put this right in a few weeks back in Dublin when he and the rest of the Newry qualifiers will contest the Cadet Championships at the National Stadium. Other Newry boxers who were unlucky in the finals were Sacred Heart’s Jordan Chambers who threw everything into an all-out bid to claw back a 7-5 deficit in the final round of his Youth (1) 36Kg final with Patrick Stokes this afternoon. But Stokes, who was as equally determined to maintain his advantage, extended his margin in the final round to secure an 11-8 win. Jason Mc Cabe of St Pats, Newry was also unlucky in his All Ireland final losing out on a score of 14 points to 11 in favour of Patryik Famulski of St Annes. A word also has to be said for Fergus Quinn of (Camlough) last year’s All Ireland Finalist and Padraig Lennon of (S.J. Bosco). The two Ulster Champions fell at the semi final stage of the All Ireland championships but had tough fights along the way, proudly gaining Ulster medals for their clubs.
