International Boxing success for Crossmaglen Boy Eugene White

13 year old Eugene White who has been boxing with Castleblayney ABC now for 2 years wins International Boxing Medal at the Monkstown Boxing Club held in Monkstown, Dublin which took place with the weigh-ins commencing Wednesday 26th – Sunday 30th June 2019.

Over the course of the 4 days there were competitions from Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Hungary and many more.  After reaching the semi-finals on Saturday Eugene came up against the South London Champion Mason Orr from Brixton.  It was a tough fight but Eugene won by a unanimous decision.

Sunday came and the finals.  This time another English competition stood in the ring against the Castleblayney Boxer, The Birmingham Champion Harry Bevan, and an even tougher fight for the Crossmaglen lad.  Eugene was on top form, and out manoeuvred his opponent to win by again a unanimous decision.  He is now the proud owner of an International title.

Well done Eugene, all the hard work and dedication to your training paid off.  Congratulations from all at Castleblayney ABC.
