John Moran has guaranteed himself at least a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games in the Bahamas.
The Illies Golden Gloves light-flyweight overcame Seanoa Hall from Samoa in his opening bout in the 49kgs category this evening.
Moran was comfortable and emphatic in victory to move onto the podium.
The 18-year-old took a unanimous decision following a domineering display in the ring, during which he showcased his vast experience in comparison to the Samoan.
Moran goes up a notch in the semi-final on Saturday as he will take on James Probert from Wales.
Probert is a World and European Junior bronze medalist who also has a European Schoolboys bronze under his belt.Tags:
