BRETT MCGINTY wasted little time in putting Jamie Harty to the sword tonight – and his old foe Jordan Myers lies in wait tomorrow at The National Stadium.
In a 69kgs preliminary round bout this evening in the Under-18 Championships, McGinty stopped Rathkeale’s Harty just two minutes into the opening round.
The on-fire McGinty rocked Harty with a punishing body shot early on and the St Johnston bruiser was in control from there.
The Oakleaf ABC welterweight had the contest over two minutes in and he’ll meet Sligo City’s Myers tomorrow, with a place in next weekend’s final at stake.
Earlier this year, McGinty had the edge on Myers, a former European champion, on his way to winning Irish title number seven.[adrotate group=”57″]
McGinty, who was beaten in a quarter-final of the European Youth Championships this summer in Russia, is in search now of title number 8.
The IABA are using the tournament as part of their selection process for November’s AIBA World Youth Championships in St Petersburg, Russia.
Dungloe’s Matthew McCole was beaten tonight at 60kgs by Waterford’s Andy McDonagh.
Tomorrow, as well as McGinty, Convoy’s Bryan McNamee and Illies Golden Gloves’ Brian Elliot are in action.
Former two-time Irish kingpin McNamee takes on Olympic’s Garbriel Dossan at 64kgs while Elliot will square off with Reece Morris at 81kgs.[adrotate group=”46″] Tags:
