A RAPHOE ABC select lost out by seven bouts to five at the KC Stadium in Hull on Saturday night.
The Raphoe team travelled under the guidance of Raphoe’s head coach Gary McCullagh.
The special guest on the night was Hull’s favourite boxing son: former Olympic champion and current pro fighter Luke Campbell who beat John Joe Nevin in the London 2012 final.
Raphoe’s Liam McMonagle overcame Ryan Dickens. McMonagle, the Ulster 9 County champion, had too much for the durable Dickens.
Declan McNamee (St John’s) and Ethan McCaul (St Joseph’s) also had their hands raised in victory.
Aaron McDaid of Raphoe defeated Joey Young, while Daire Feeney overcame Jibrain Khan.
Tom Doherty lost out to Kyle Durnain and Dennis Lafferty, now with Lifford ABC, lost out to Naseem Stowell.
The jovial Jude Gallagher lost out to Blaine Lambert, while there was no joy for Two Alin, Cealan Doherty, Ben Cooke or Fergal Redmond, who was a late replacement for Kieran Molloy.
A crowd of around 300 attended the dinner show in the Kingston Suite of the KC Stadium, the home of Hull City.Tags:
