Irish Amateur Boxing Association Update

Tommy Murphy, the President of the Irish Amateur Boxing Association, has hailed the performances of Ireland's young female boxers following the conclusion of the 2012 Girl 1,2,3,4,5 & 6 National Championships at the National Stadium in Dublin last night..

Almost 200 athletes - a record entry level - competed at the tournament, enhancing female boxing's reputation as one of Ireland's fastest growing sports.

Eight-six titles were distributed at the South Circular Road venue amid a pulsating atmosphere at the home of Irish boxing.

"We had a magnificent entry for the Championships and I was very impressed with the quality of the boxing during the tournament and the sheer enthusiasm of all the young athletes competing, said Tommy Murphy.

"The boxers, clubs and coaches and everyone involved in the running of the tournament deserve enormous credit for their contribution to what was a fantastic sporting occasion."

The remaining Girl 1 & 2 and Girl 4,5 & 6 finals were decided last evening
