The Dublin Co. Board and Yorkshire ABA continued their strong relationship when both had very strong Schoolboy teams match off against other at a packed out Ringside Club at the National Stadium Dublin on Saturday 19th January.

This is turning into a yearly tradition with the sides meeting for the fifth year in a row.

After 21 high quality contests Dublin took the spoils 12-9 against a top class Yorkshire Schoolboys Team. Every single bout was well matched and very close – all the boxers aged 11 to 14 showed boxing skills well beyond their years. Both teams are a credit to the sport of Boxing.

The event was sponsored locally by www.smackwear.ie and www.fighterscorner.ie
Pat White from Smackwear supplied Tshirts for the whole Yorkshire Team. While Mike Mullen and Jimmy Upton from Fighters Corner Finglas continued their support to the Dublin Co. Board and supplied the Dublin team with Tshirts and Medals for the event.

“We would sincerely like to thank the Yorkshire Boxing Board – and in particular Maria Maronitas, Stevie Smith and Phil Smith for making it all happen, they are proper boxing people and a pleasure to work with, said Dublin coach JP Kinsella.

“We look forward to the return in Yorkshire in October 2019.”

“Massive thanks goes to the members of the Dublin Co. Board for supporting our teams and of course our sponsors above.

Attached are full results with supporting bouts also.
