AIBA have selected 36 R&Js from throughout the world to officiate at the flagship event of international boxing.
McGarrigle, a 3-Star AIBA R&J from the Mourne Golden Gloves in Strabane, Tyrone, is thrilled to get the call for the biggest tournament since Rio 2016.
“I’m absolutely delighted to go to that level and it’s brilliant for Irish boxing,” he said.
280 boxers will compete in Hamburg. Five of those athletes – Brendan Irvine, Kurt Walker, Sean McComb, Joe Ward and Dean Gardiner – will represent Ireland.
18 of the boxers in Hamburg claimed medals at Rio 2016.
Stephen Connolly, IABA National Registrar, congratulated McGarrigle on his call up.
“We’re absolutely delighted for Ben and to have an Irish referee and judge at the World Elite Men’s Championships. Congratulations to Ben and we wish him the very best of luck,” he said.
