BOXING: There was delight for Dungloe ABC fighter Mark McCole as he produced a superb performance to book his place in the All-Ireland semi-finals.
McCole defeated the highly fancied Lee Reeves from South Limerick earlier tonight at the National Stadium in Dublin.
The judges awarded McCole the victory on a 2-1 score-card in what was described as a cracking contest.
McCole defeated Eddie Lawrence from The Holy Cross boxing club in Drogheda last weekend – and is really showing why he’s been tipped by many to win the All-Ireland Intermediate title.
McCole comes from good stock – his family are steeped in boxing tradition.
The Dungloe ABC club has produced multiple All-Ireland winners – and McCole will be hoping he can add his name to an illustrious list of names.
He will fight Keane McMahon from Dublin in next week’s All-Ireland semi-final.
There was disappointment for Declan Ferry who lost his bout – and Michael Gallagher is in action tomorrow night.Tags:
