Irish boxing icon Michael Carruth will be among the attendance on Saturday night when Raphoe ABC hosts its 30th anniversary tournament.
A Raphoe ABC contingent will take on an Irish All-Stars selection at Deele College with 13 contests slated.
Carruth was the welterweight gold medallist at the 1992 Olympic Games and is now a coach at the Drimnagh Boxing Club, who have five boxers in action on Saturday night.
It is 26 years now since Carruth won Ireland’s first ever Olympic gold in boxing – 36 years after Ronnie Delaney won the 1500m in Melbourne.
Carruth took to the ring only a few hours after Wayne McCullough won bantamweight silver.
History unfolded at the Pavelló Club Joventut de Badalona where Carruth went toe-to-toe with Juan Hernández Sierra, a Cuban who would win four World Championship golds.
Carruth took victory 13-10 having previously beaten Mikaele Masoe, Andreas Otto and Arkhom Chenglai.
Carruth brings Ben Williams, Wesley Obwartna, James Euzell, Jack Gill and Gavin Bradshaw to Donegal for bouts on Saturday night.
Raphoe ABC has had a memorable 30th year with star turn Leah Gallen having returned a European bronze medal and two Irish titles in 2018.
Match-maker Gary McCullagh has put together a fine list of bouts to mark his club’s big night.
The first bell will go at Deele College at 8pm. Admission €8; OAP and Under-15 €5.
