IABA UPDATE (NATIONAL INTERMEDIATE C’SHIPS QUARTER-FINALS)
Irish Amateur Boxing Association
John Cassidy beat his own Illies GG team-mate Leigh Moran to advance to the semi-finals of the National Intermediate Championships at Dublin’s National Stadium tonight.
Cassidy emerged with a hard-fought 11-8 decision from the all Donegal 48kg clash.
Meanwhile, Sean Higginson will fancy his chances of going all the way at the home of Irish boxing.
The St John Bosco BC stand out produced an impressive performance to convincingly beat Ian Fleming this evening.
Ryan Peake, Carl McDonald, Gary McKenna, John Nevin and Joel Scullion also progressed, while Graham Keating had seven points to spare over Jason Kirwan.
The lightweight duels went the way of Jason Conroy, Patrick Nevin, Martin Noonan and Dean Walsh, who was involved in a 49-point three-rounder with Sean Flynn.
Noonan staged one of the comebacks of the year last weekend, but there were no outstanding third round reversal of fortune tonight as the Leesider posted a less dramatic 14-10 victory over Orin McDermot.
Paul McArdle, Sean Magee and Sean Duffy booked their tickets into the last-four in the final three bouts of the session.
