Continued success at Joe Gallagher campus

Learners at our Joe Gallagher boxing campus have recently been involved in a number of Box Cup and National Championship competitions and have been very successful.

A Box Cup is where all the boxers will compete within their weight division over a 3 day period, usually a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The MTK Box Cup was held from 21st to the 24th of October. Within this Box Cup there were 5 finalists with 3 of the learners winning and becoming the MTK box Cup champion.

Liam Lowe (Champion)
Paige Howath (Champion)
Odel Kamara (Champion)
Jay Warden (Finalist)
Kieran McDaid (Finalist)

Alongside this we had several learners competing in the National Championships, the finals for this were held over the weekends of 29th to 31st October and 26th to 28th November. In advance of the final, the boxers have to compete within their region, then inter-regional before progressing into the finals weekends.

During these Championships, 5 of our learners reached the final and 2 became national champions.
