Illies Golden Gloves staged a successful tournament last night against an Ulster & Connacht Select at the Halfway House in Burnfoot.
Home boxers took victory in ten of the contests on the night.
They included two-time Irish champion Chloe McDaid. The Crana College student was in action against Ciara Craig of Dunfanaghy and ‘Little Miss Dynamite’ took the unanimous decision of the judges at ringside.
Caroline Gallagher, an Ulster Novice champion in 2017 (above), defeated Paula Gallagher from the Sean McDermott club.
In an elite middleweight bout, Davit Tsotsoria defeated Virginia’s Martin Maughan.
