Eugene Boxes to Gold in Paris

Elite 69 kg boxer Eugene McKeever from Mullaghbawn who fights out of Holy Family Boxing Club Drogheda, has just won the Gold medal at the very prestigious multi-nation Montana Belts tournament in Paris. 

Eugene won on an unanimous decision on his third bout over the three day tournament having forced his opponent from Monaco to take two standing counts following two thundering right hands. Having accounted for a Frenchman on Thursday Eugene navigated a trick German opponent on Friday before capping off a wonderful 3 day’s display of explosive boxing on Saturday by winning the Gold medal.
