The Two Castles ABC host a top international tournament this Friday evening in Tyrone.

An Irish Select meet a highly-rated Wales and Scotland Select in the Fir Trees Hotel in Strabane.

18 star-studded contests are down for decision featuring many local boxers, including Jude Gallagher, the Mayse twins Allanagh and Tiarnan, Cealan Doherty, Sean Fee, Tiarnan Glennon. Danny McHugh, John Conlan, Charles McDonagh and Eoghan Quinn.

World Elite quarter-finalist Ceire Smith is also between the ropes.

Smith, who was edged on a 3-2 split decision by North Korea’s 2018 World Elite gold medallist Mi Choi Pang in the flyweight quarter-finals at this month’s World Women’s Elites in Siberia, meets ABA champion, Helen Jones.

“It’s a really good card and I’m very much looking forward to Friday night,” said Smith, a six-time Irish Elite titlist.
