The 2012 boxing season began where it left off with more success for Armagh-Down clubs at the Mid-Ulster Novice Championships at Tyholland, Monaghan at the weekend. St. John Bosco had the most winners with six entries and six winners in Kane Tucker, Brendan McParland, Molly Patterson, Nicole McCann, Aaron Smith and Darren McCabe. St Brigid’s Patrick Byrne and Jack O’Doherty kept the winning run going with another two titles. O’Doherty picked up his first ever title in a close contest against McDonagh (Cobra). Paul Higgins (St Pats) had two difficult contests and came out on top, winning his first title at the 36kg class. The performance of the championship came at Intermediate level with Michael McGarry (St Bronagh’s) defeating Stephen Sweeney (All Blacks). Sweeney had defeated Cadet Champion early in the season at the Armagh-Down Championships so it showed it was a great victory for McGarry in his win over Sweeney. With such a high success rate for local clubs at this championships it bodes well for the rest of the year with the All-Ireland’s fast approaching. Mc Garry will be back in action next Friday night along with the rest of the St Bronagh’s boxers at the club’s annual boxing show in the Balmoral Warrenpoint. It promises to be an action packed night of boxing with a number of local clubs on the bill along with a strong Meath boxing team attending.
