ANTRIM welterweight Aidan Walsh is the last man standing from the team that won five medals at the Commonwealth Youth Games five years again, according to the Irish News.
Stephen McKenna (gold), James McGivern (gold), Tiernan Bradley (silver) and Brett McGinty (silver) have all turned over to the paid ranks in recent years.
Walsh will be cheering them all on as they step up through the gears, but the west Belfast counter-puncher has no plans to ditch the vest any time soon.
“I’m the only amateur left,” said the 23-year-old, who brought gold home from Samoa in 2015.
“All those lads will go on and do really well, but my goal is the Olympics. If the big offers follow, then I’ll think about it.
“For now though, it’s all about Tokyo and maybe the next Commonwealths. I’d love to go there and get gold after getting silver last time [at the 2018 Games].
“You never know what’s around the corner as the past six months have shown us but, at the minute, getting qualified for the Olympics is all that matters.”
