Please scroll down for running order and times for Friday’s National Elite Men’s and Women’s Championships finals at Dublin’s National Stadium.

The Championships has a double – or even treble –  significance for male boxers this year as the champions will be in the driving seat for selection for June’s European Elite Championships in the Ukraine which are the sole qualifiers for August’s World Elite Championships in Germany.

The 2017 tournament is the first Elite Championships in over a year as the IABA ran the Elite Championships twice in 2015 to facilitate Ireland’s boxers going into the qualifiers for Rio 2016.

The finalist will participate in a ring parade at 7.15pm Friday. Boxing begins at 7.30pm sharp.

Sixteen finals will be decided in the ring.
