Thirteen new Irish champions were crowned at the National Stadium in Dublin tonight following the conclusion of the National Intermediate Championships.
Gary Molloy was the first boxer to have his hand raised in victory after reversing a 2-1 first round deficit to earn an 8-5 flyweight win over Declan Geraghty.
But there were mixed fortunes for the St Saviours OBA club - Glen Murray seeing off the challenge of Conor Fleming.
But Graham Keating had no answer to classy Belfast southpaw Tyrone McKenna, who was 12-1 up when the 57Kg final was stopped in the first round.
However,  Charlie Haggarty equalised the Dublin/Belfast series with 15-7 win over Eamon Finnegan - both boxers were presented with their medals by back-to-back World lightweight champ Katie Taylor.
And Dublin edged one bout ahead when Bracken lightweight  Rob Gorman staged one of the come backs of the year to beat Niall McGinley by a three point margin in a 60Kg thriller.
Gorman appeared to be dead and buried after McGinley had used his height and reach advantage to open up a 5-0 lead at the end of the second.
But the Dubliner, roared on by his sizable army of supporters, levelled the contest at 5-5 in the third before storming through the final round to victory.
Meanwhile, Finn Valley ace Jason Quigley ensured his sizable band of fans were celebrating following a 6-1 verdict over Patrick J Ward.
The light middleweight belt was  claimed by Rivertowns Rory O'Donoghue at the expense of JJ Joyce. The lead changed three times in this bout - which was level six times - before O'Donoghue ensured that the 71Kg crown was on the way to Cork.
Middleweight Stephen O'Reilly looked to be on his way to claiming his ninth Irish title after dominating the opening three rounds of his clash with Jimmy Sweeney.
But never-say-die Sweeney levelled proceedings in the final frame before scoring the winning point in the last 10 seconds of an excellent four rounds of boxing.
Denis Hogan is the new 81Kg champion after edging out Brendan Fitzpatrick on a count-back in a top class light heavyweight decider.
Meantime, there was double disappointment for the Twintowns club after Danny Tourish lost the cruiserweight final to Richie Barrett - a brother of ex Irish Olympian Francis Barrett, while Cathal Barry lost out to Patrick Coyle in the heavyweight decider.
West Meath super heavyweight Joe Joyce denied Munster a second title after his bout with Peter Williams was stopped due to an injury to the Limerick man late in the 4th round. Joyce was 12-4 up at the time.

DUBLIN light welterweight Michael Fitzpatrick survived a public warning and a spirited come back from Kildare's John Joe Joyce to advance to the last four of the National Intermediate Championships at the National Stadium tonight.
Fitzpatrick was 5-2 ahead at the end of the second but Joyce restored parity midway through the third before opening up a two point advantage.
The lead changed hands twice in the final frame and Fitzpatrick appeared to be heading for the exit when he dropped two points after incurring the wrath of the referee for dropping his head.
However, the Baldoyle clubman landed four shots in quick succession to edge a top class  quarter final 14-13.
Niall McGinley meanwhile, progressed from his all Belfast duel with James McDonagh after registering a 13-3 win. McGinley boxed well within himself in this four rounder and will fancy his chances of going all the way in the 64Kg division.
Brackens Rob Gorman and the impressive Stephen Coughlan booked their tickets into the semi finals from the remaining 64Kg deciders, Coughlan, of the Bray BC, beating Luke Comiskey 22-3.
Meantime, Ger Clancy came from behind to beat Danny Bond in the first of the 67Kg showdowns and Jason Quigley held his composure in the face of sporadic aggression from Andy O'Neill to seal a 31-6 verdict.
There were 67Kg wins also for the skilful  Niall Murray and Pat Ward of the Olympic club.
Cork light middleweight Rory O'Donoghue levelled his bout with Ronan Brennan three times before forcing the Dundalk man into a standing count in the second with a thudding right en route to an impressive 18-6 victory.
Martin Lynch received a walkover, while Tiernan Sludds and John Joe Joyce won the final bouts of the evening.
The Championships resume tomorrow with the final session of quarter finals bouts beginning at 2.30pm.The first session of semi final bouts will be decided tomorrow night beginning at 7.30pm.
The weigh-in for both sessions will be held tomorrow morning at the National Stadium between 8.30am and 9.30am.

Quigley looks to end good month on high

Amateur Boxing: Irish Intermediate Championships
By Eamonn O'Hara
24/11/08

JASON Quigley, crowned national U21
welterweight champion at the start of the month, aims to finish it by punching his way through to December’s Irish Intermediate Championship finals when the box-offs resume at the Stadium on Friday night.
Finn Valley’s ace stormed into the quarter-finals at his weight with a 14-point winning margin, achieved inside two rounds, to stop Richard Balfe of Macroom in last weekend’s preliminaries.
Quigley is one of five Donegal boxers in the spotlight later in the week.
Fellow Irish U21 champion Stephen O’Reilly of Twintown, Carrigart’s Noel McCarron and Michael O’Neill of Dungloe are all through to the last eight of the middleweights. Martin Lynch of Illies Golden Gloves bids on Friday for a place in the 71 kilos semi-finals set for December 5.
Quigley and two other Ulster title challengers, Dockers light-welter James McDonagh and Niall McGinley of Bishop Kelly, who also boxes at 64 kilos, face two potential tests in the space of 24 hours. If they get through on Friday their semi-finals will take place the following night.
McDonagh, a recent Ulster finalist, advanced following a second round stoppage of Jamie Quigley (St Paul’s). McGinley won an all-Ulster club scrap, defeating Jimmy Upton (Holy Family).
O’Reilly, who triumphed in the U21 decider against Olympic’s Brian Brosnan, had nine scoring shots to spare over Crumlin’s Mark Carlyle in the prelims, McCarron beat Richard Macy (St Saviours) by eight points, O’Neill by the same impressive margin against Southpaw’s Carl Joyce. Their quarter-finals are scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
Ulster boxing is strongly respresented on Saturday’s Stadium bill, with semi-finals pencilled in for four divisions (51kgs, 54kgs, 57kgs and 60kgs). Cavan’s David Nevin goes in at 51 after an excellent performance at the weekend to outclass quarter-final opponent Anthony O’Brien (Baldoyle), 11-1.
Meanwhile, Katie Taylor (left), the world lightweight champion, got her title defence off to a sensational start at the 5th AIBA Women’s World Championships in China yesterday, with a 20-3 preliminary round win over Australia’s Emma Carruthers.
The Bray star, who also holds the European and EU Championship titles, will take on Danusa Dilhofava of the Czech Republic tomorrow morning at the Ningbo Youngor Gymnasium in Ningbo City. Another victory would take Taylor into the quarter-finals. Dilhofava was also convincing in her prelim contest, out-scoring Gonca Yilmaz of Turkey 12-0.

Twelve additional boxers advanced toward the business end of the National Intermediate Championships following the completion of tonight's quarter finals at the National Stadium in Dublin.
Glen Murray and Conor Fleming got the nod from a majority of the five  judges after finishing all square after double count-backs versus Michael Kelly and Kenneth Ruth.
Charlie Haggerty and Keith Coady meanwhile, were involved in a cracking contest which the Golden Cobra man won, while Tyrone McKenna triumphed when Pat McCarton retired in round two.
Holy Family ace, Stephen Kilroy impressed in a 16-5 win over Martin McDonagh.
Earlier today, Gearoid Clancy and Barry O'Toole were separated by the first count-back of the tournament, Clancy shading a razor thin 17-16 decision.
John Joe Joyce and Kevin McIntyre looked to be heading in the same direction - but Joyce, from the Ryston club, registered a crucial point in the final round to claim victory.
There were impressive victories also for Robert Gorman, Niall Murray and Michael Fitzpatrick, who, along with Jason Quigley, recorded some of the biggest winning margins of the day - Quigley was 14 points up when he stopped Richard Balfe in round two.
But there was triple disappointment for the Rylane club in Cork after Ben Coughlan, John Murray and Ciaran Twohig all bowed out in the space of an hour.
Murray appeared to have weathered the early storm versus Ronan Brennan and was 4-0 up at the end of the first. But Brennans relentless pressure finally paid off in the final round and he ran out a 16-9 winner.
Twohig was also ahead of the end of the first but lost out by a three point margin to Shane Egan. However, Riverstowns Rory O'Donoghue kept the flag flying for Leeside with an impressive 17-1 win over Michael Sweeney.
Light middleweight Gerard Stokes won the all Dublin clash with Jonathan Doyle, who took a count in the fourth.
The National Intermediate Championships will recommence next Friday night.
