The President of the IABA,
Dominic O'Rourke believes that tonight's middleweight clash between Bernard

Roe, who represented Ireland at last years AIBA World Youth

from the Clonoe club.
And IABA chief O'Rourke reckons that the 75Kg showdown has
the potential for fireworks.
He said: "Both boxers have been in top form at the
Championships and if they bring that type of form into their final then
we should be in for a very exciting four rounds.
"I have been very impressed with the quality shown at the
Youth Championships so far and Friday's finals will cap what has been a very
competitive and exciting tournament."
Roe is one of three Dublin Dockland boxers in action at IABA
headquarters. Glen Holmes and Gary Murphy will also be between the ropes at
54Kg and 69Kg.
Murphy faces the in-form Jason Quigley in another decider
with potential to be the bout of the evening.
Boxing begins at 7.30pm tonight.

claim a hat-trick of Irish titles at the National Youth Championships at

And Holy Trinity ace Sean McComb won Belfast's first belt
from a close encounter Glen Holmes, McComb pulling away in the final round
to win 7-4.
Ciara Noonan and James Fryers also
earned positive verdicts, while Emma Agnew took the early route to victory
versus Tara Keane.
Mark O'Hara won his all Ulster 60Kg clash with Paul Kelly
- but the Castlebar BC were denied a female double after Paulstowns Amanda
Coughlin beat Emma Kilcoyne.
Keady light welterweight Sean Duffy had
to accept second best versus Gavin Moore in the 64Kg final, and Jason
Quigley had opened up a three point advantage before his 69Kg clash with
Gary Murphy was stopped in the third.
Meanwhile, there was triple disappointment for the Dublin
Docklands club when Bernard Roe was beaten 9-6 by Conrad Cummins in a top
class middleweight showdown.
Patrick McDonagh meantime, finished on top of the light
