Mongan wins forward and Fascizewska gears up for Silesian Box Cup semi final

Team Ireland’s 66kg Gabrielle Mongan (Whitechurch) has won through to the business end of the Silesian Box Cup, being hosted by the Polish Boxing Association, following a 3:0 win over her opponent, England’s Amy Nolan. Cliona D’Arcy put in a battling performance, but came over the wrong side of a 2:1 split decision, in favour of her opponent, IBAG’s Sara Lysianne Glasser.

Yet to box but assured of a medal are Team Captain 50kg Katie O’Keeffe (Kanturk) with a bye in to the final. Likewise, 54kg Niamh Keogh (Olympic Mullingar), who has a straight final against a home boxer.
