IATBA Championships – Preview of Saturday’s Finals

stadium1

The 2017 Irish Athletic Third-level Boxing Association Championships will draw to a close Saturday March 11 with 19 finals scheduled at the home of Irish boxing, The National Stadium, starting at 11 a.m.

The first bout is in the Junior Novice cruiserweight class (86Kg) as Niall McCarthy (UCC) faces Finbarr Maguire (Cork IT). McCarthy, who claimed two All-Ireland hurling medals with Cork and an All-Star award during a storied inter-county career, has in recent times taken up boxing with St Colman’s BC in Cork, and looks to be taking well to the real “toughest trade”. Will CIT’s Maguire deny him another All-Ireland Title in this all-Cork battle?

Cork IT are also represented by 2017 Irish Novice Championships finalist Ian Kelleher in the Senior Novice lightweight final, where he boxes Eoin Meaney (UL).

There are two all Dublin contests at Junior Novice 64Kg and 67Kg where Aaron McGuigan (ITT Dublin) faces Conor Harte (DCU), and André Mendes (ITT Dublin) faces Jack Matthews (Monkstown/IADT).

In the lone female final at Senior 60Kg, Rivers McCormack, coming off a big confidence boosting win against Irish Senior (formerly intermediate) champion Saidhbh Greene in the semi-final, faces another multi-Irish title winner in Louise Donohue (Geesala/IT Sligo).

Gary McKenna, whom represented the IATBA’s Irish student team at last October’s World University Boxing Championships in Thailand, will meet Jason Kirwan (UL) to determine the champion in the Senior 60Kg division.

The Senior 64Kg final will be an all Ulster battle as Niall McAlinden (Holy Family GG/Ulster University) goes head to head with Matthew Murnion (St Bronagh’s/Queens).

The 81Kg final is another provincial derby as former Irish Intermediate champion from Galway, Ryan Dervan (NUIG), meets Mayo’s James Daly (GMIT).

In the final bout of the championships, World University Championships bronze medallist Kenneth Okungbowa (Athlone/AIT) will square-off with Cian O’Shaughnessy (Rathkeale/NUIG) at Senior super heavyweight.

IATBA Championships Friday Finals

The finals of the 2017 Irish Athletic Third-level Boxing Association Championships glove-off at Irish Boxing HQ, the National Stadium, at 7:45 pm on Friday March 10th with seven contests up for decision.

In the Senior Novice class, there can be only one IATBA champion, as Ulster University’s Connor MacLeod faces Shane Carter of DCU ABC in the 67Kg decider. Both boxers looked in fine form in their respective semi-finals so a  close contest can be expected.

DCU are again represented at 71Kg where Solomon Simon takes on David McVicker from Belfast Metropolitan College’s Boxing Academy in a straight final.

At clash of styles will make for an exciting bout at 75Kg Senior Novice where last year’s Junior Novice champion Shane O’Brien (UCC) faces Shane Fitgerald (DCU). O’Brien’s athletic, aggressive go-forward style saw him reach the Irish Novice 75Kg final in January where he just lost out on a split decision. He’ll be hoping to go one better this time against Fitzgerald, whom adopts more counter punching tactics. Potentially fight of the night.

In the lone Youth class final at 64Kg, the 2017 Irish Novice champion Conor Jennings (St. Monica’s Newry/SRC) meets the talented Kenneth Doyle (Sallynoggin CFE) from Dublin’s Monksland club .

The Intermediate 75Kg final sees UL’s Dean Griffen oppose DCU’s John Marshall, one of the north Dublin University’s 9 IATBA finalists.

IATBA veteran Fionnbarr Thompson (Southside BA/UL) will box Patryk Adamus (Drimnagh/Inchicore CFE) for the Intermediate 60Kg title. Thompson is seeking his third IATBA title since 2013.

The final bout of the night features a DCU boxer once more as Jack Robinson goes against Monkstown’s (via Bantry) Séamus Lyons.

A great night’s boxing is guaranteed so please come do come along and support the boxers. Admission is €5..
