Raphoe ABC bantamweight Dennis Lafferty is into the Ulster Senior final following a fine win in Belfast last night.
The Ballindrait man – pictured with Raphoe ABC coach Gerard Keaveney– overcame Derek Kerr from Monkstown in a semi-final at the Dockworkers Club.
Now, Lafferty will face Rory Lavery of Holy Family in Friday night’s final.
Lavery overcame Dominic Bradley (Holy Family) after putting Kerr to the sword.
Lafferty took a 3-2 decision from the ringside judges to make his way into the 60kgs final.

Dunree welter Charles Duffy faces Shane Murphy of Carrickmore in a semi-final on Thursday, while Illies Golden Gloves super-heavyweight Michael McConigley is up against Belfast’s David Ferrin in a semi.
