Strandja Day Five: McNaul Bows Out.

Carly NcNaul has bowed-out of the 73rd Strandja International Tournament at the Quarter Final stage.

The W52kg boxer put in a valiant performance against Tetiana Kob of Ukraine, but lost on a unanimous decision.

Carly was the only Team Ireland in the ring in Sofia today.

On Friday, Olympic champion, Kellie Harrington, and fellow Olympian, Aoife O’Rourke, contest the semi-finals.

Both women have already secured at least bronze medals, and will vie for the chance to up-grade their hardward.

W60kg Kellie Harrington will meet Kazakhstan’s Rimma Volossenko in bout 11 of Ring A’s afternoon session.

W75kg Aoife O’Rourke will contest against Russia’s Anastasia Shamonova in Bout 8 of Ring B’s afternoon session.

Boxing begins at midday, Irish time. The tournament is being streamed on the IBA’s YouTube channel.
