CAROL COUGHLAN won the first bout of the 2021 Elite Championships after a power-packed performance at Dublin’s National Stadium tonight.

The Dubliner beat Courtney Daly on a unanimous decision in an all Dublin derby in the light-flyweight class

Sara Haghighat-Jo forced Clodagh McComiskey into a standing count in the second round of a lively bantamweight contest in the second bout on the card.

And the Eedendery BC stand out obliged McComiskey to take another standing count near the end of the third en route to a unanimous decision win.

Patryk Adamus and Jude Gallagher were involved in a tight featherweight bout.

Gallagher worked well on the inside in rounds one and two, but Adamus was scoring with hooks.

The third round was equally tight, but Gallagher got the nod on a 3-2 split decision.

Teo Allen won the final bout of the evening on a unanimous decision over Thomas McCann.

Boxing resumes tomorrow at 12 noon. A second session will be decided starting at 4pm.
