Four out of four for Irish youths
17 Apr 2014 22:10
Willie Donoghue, Michael Gallagher, Ciara Ginty and Christina Desmond made it four wins from four for Ireland at the AIBA World Youth Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.
-
Gallagher was the dominant force in his heavyweight encounter with Canada’s Evangeles Frangos, the only surprise being that the Donegal man’s victory was adjudged to be a split decision.
-
Gallagher took a technical count in the first round of this encounter after he called for some attention for a nose bleed. Donoghue was involved in a high-tempo three-rounder with Domenik Hirsch.
-
The German flyweight found the target with some neat shots against the current AIBA World Junior champion.
-
But for every shot he landed, Donoghue was replying with rapid-fire two- and three-punch combinations on his way to a unanimous, 30-27 across the board decision.
-
Earlier, Ciara Ginty, also a current AIBA World Junior champion, and Christina Desmond, a World Youth silver medallist, both won.
-
Ginty and Desmond beat Bulgaria’s Nikol Mladenova and Ekaternina Serova, respectively.
