TWO Donegal boxers won Ulster 9 County finals last weekend in Derry.
Dunfanaghy ABC’s Luke Kelly and Conan Kearney from the St Bridget’s ABC in Clonmany had their hands raised after final victories.
Kelly took the Boy 2, 41.5kgs title in impressive fashion. Kelly defeated Cahir O’Connor from Mark Heagney ABC in Kildress.
Kelly claimed a unanimous decision win after a superb display at the Shantallow Community Centre.
Kearney edged a tight contest with Joe Cunningham to win the Boy 1, 41.5kgs final.
Kearney was given a 3-2 split decision against the St Joseph’s ABC, Derry fighter.
Fintan Robertson from St Bridget’s lost to Harvey Cochrane of Castle in the Boy 1, 33kgs final, while Dungloe’s David Tennyson was beaten by Brendan Ferran from Holy Trinity in the Boy 1, 35kgs decider.
Kerry Brown of Convoy was on the wrong end of a 4-1 split in the Girl 1, 37kgs final with Casey McKeown from St Monica’s.
Carndonagh’s Darragh Porter was stopped in the second round of the Boy 2, 46kgs final by Star’s Ciaran O’Neill and Cookstown’s Seamus Maughan had a unanimous decision win against Convoy puncher Pearse McBride at Boy 3, 52kgs.
There was joy, though, for Ballybofey schoolboy Sean Devenney, fighting out of the Oakleaf ABC. Devenney defeated Oisin McCann from St Paul’s on a 4-1 split in the Boy 3, 43kgs final
Two Donegal boxers also received walkover wins last weekend: Georgia Doherty (Raphoe, Girl 1, 33kgs) and Lani Lafferty (Twin Towns, Girl 3, 55kgs).Tags:
