Two Team Ireland boxers have won through from today’s Quarter Finals, to the semi finals and podium finishes.
66kg Amy Broadhurst contested against former World silver medalist, Canada’s Charlie Cavanagh. She came away with at least a bronze medal, and will boxer her semi final tomorrow. Also joining her on the STRANDJA tournament podium is 80kg Kelyn Cassidy, who won through following a 3-2 split against Serbia.
Contesting their third bouts of the tournament were 54kg boxers Niamh Fay and Jennifer Lehane. Niamh boxed against Poland, and exits the competition after a 4-1 split in favour of her opponent. Jenny met the USA for the second time at the tournament, and her opponent progresses following a 5-0 win. 51kg Sean Mari, who met Uzbekistan following a prelim win against Algeria yesterday – the UD went his opponent’s way.
Team Ireland was already guaranteed two medals – Olympic lightweight champ, Kellie Harrington, meets France in the 63kg semi finals on Saturday, and European silver medallist, Christina Desmond, boxes her semi on the same day against India.
There are a record 450 boxers from 42 nations contesting the competition, organised and operated by the Bulgarian Boxing Federation.
