CONROY AND STOKES BOW OUT OF WORLD JUNIOR C'SHIPS

Wednesday, July 27, 2011 at 5:39PM

John Stokes (red)*The Irish squad are due to arrive home via Dublin Airport at 11am next (August 1st) Monday morning (Lufthansa flight LH978)*

Martin Conroy and John Stokes suffered double disappointment in the 75Kg and 54Kg quarter-finals at the AIBA World Junior Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan today.

 

Both boxers were vying to reach the semi-finals - and secure at least a bronze medal apiece - but lost out to German and Russian opponents.

 

Mayo middleweight Conroy was edged out 6-5 by Germany's Dmitar Tilev. The first round of this 75Kg clash finished level at 1-1 and both boxers were tied at 2-2 at the end of the second.

However, Tilev claimed the third and final round 3-2 - the winning score arriving in the final few seconds - to book his ticket into the last-four at the expense of the Ballyhaunis BC middleweight, a bronze meal winner at the 2011 European Junior Championships.

Dublin bantamweight Stokes bowed out following a 10-6 reversal to Artem Melkonyan of Russia. Melkonyan took the first round 3-2 and had built up a  7-4 advantage by the end of the second.

Stokes, from the Mulhuddart BC, found the target twice in the third and final frame, but his Russian opponent was awarded another three points.

Today's defeats bring Ireland's competitive interest in the Championships to a close.

Thursday is a rest day at the tournament. The semi-finals and finals will be held on Friday and Saturday.

STOKES AND CONROY ADVANCE IN ASTANA Tuesday, July 26, 2011 at 5:23PM

Martin Conroy

Martin Conroy and John Stokes are through to the quarter-finals of the AIBA World Junior Championships following wins over Scotland and Egypt today.

 

Conroy beat Amir Elsaey of Egypt 23-5 and Stokes beat Scotland's Samuel Ball 9-6 in Astana, Kazakhstan. But John Nevin bowed out despite a brave performance against  Kumar Naveen of India this afternoon.

 

Conroy, a bronze medal winner at the 2011 European Junior Championships, was outstanding and picked his punches perfectly in the 1st round to lead 6-1.

 

The Egyptian came out fighting in the second frame, but Conroy counter-punched his way into a  13-3 lead.

  

The Ballyhaunis BC ace then picked off some beautiful counter-punches in the third,  mostly with his back hand, to record a comprehensive 23-5 victory.

 

John Nevin

Stokes and Ball shared the first frame 1-1.  However, the young Dubliner upped his game in the second, using  his counter punching skills to command a 6-3 advantage at the bell. 

The Scottish boxer came storming forward in round three, but Stokes maintained his composure to pick his shots cleanly en route to  a well deserved win.

Nevin, also a bronze medal winner at the 2011 European Juniors, found himself 4-1 behind after the first in a bout that was 50-50. 

He threw more punches in the second and third to try an put his opponent under pressure and did appear to have some success. Unfortunately, the scores did not reflect his endeavours.

Conroy and Stokes will now meet German and Russian opponents tomorrow.  If both boxers win then Ireland will be guaranteed at least two brozne medals in Astana.

Caoimhin Agyarko/Hynes (pictured) bowed out of the AIBA World Junior Championships in Kazakhstan today.

The Belfast featherweight lost out to 12-9  to Aliyov Noraliev of Uzbekistan at the last-16 stage in Astana.

Agyarko/Hynes was trailing 4-2 at the end of the first and his opponent received two public warnings for throwing him to the ground in the second, only one of which was picked up by the judges.

The Holy Trinity BC Belfast club-man poured forward in the third round, but Noraliev picked off counter shot to claim victory by a three-point margin.

AIBA WORLD JUNIOR C'SHIPS UPDATED Sunday, July 24, 2011 at 4:26PM

Jack Connolly (blue) in action

 

John Stokes progressed to the last-16 of the AIBA World Junior Championships after recording a well deserved victory in Kazakhstan today.

 

But Jack Connolly, Shane McIntyre and Keith Flavin bowed out following defeats in Astana.

 

Stokes was in against Shorukh Ogonazarov and dropped the first round 1-0, and though he seemed to force the issue in the second he still trailled 4-3 at the bell. However, the Mulhuddart BC ace uppped the tempo again in the final frame to seal victory with virtually the last punch of a very technical contest with the Tajikistan southpaw.

 

Shane McIntyre (red) in action

Connolly lost out 14-10 to Russian lightweight Shamil Malsatov. However, Connolly, who boxes out of the Clonmel BC, can take a lot of positives from this defeat, not least the fact that both boxers received a standing ovation for serving up the contest of the day in the 60Kg class. Moreover, Malsatov won gold and scooped the boxer of the tournament award at the recent European Junior Championships.

 

Connolly made a slow start today and found himself 5-1 in arrears at the end of the first, but the Tipperary teenager produced a storming second frame, forcing the European champ onto the backfoot with attacks to the head and body. The left the scoring at 11-8 to Malsatov going into the third round of a very tough, tight battle.

 

McIntyre was trailing 4-3 after the first stanza versus Gor Jevelkyan. However, following a change of tactics the Golden Gloves prospect took an 8-6 advantage into the third. McIntyre found the target with some solid shots again going down the final stretch, but received public warning near the end of the frame, a penalty that handed Jevelkyan his two-point margin of victory.

 

Flavin was leading 3-2 when his contest Myradov Shatlykmrat of Turkmenistan  was stopped after he took a count following what Irish coach Billy McClean described as a right hook out of the blue in the first round.

 

Caomhin Agyarko/Hynes will be in action tomorrow, while Stokes, John Nevin and Martin Conroy will be between the ropes at the 52-nation tournament on Tuesday.

JOYCE BOWS OUT IN ASTANA Saturday, July 23, 2011 at 1:43PM

 

Hughie Joyce bowed out of the AIBA World Junior Championships following a preliminary round reversal to Prasa Lalitha Polipalla of India today.

 

Polipalla, a gold medal winner at the Asian Games, who will now meet England's Luke McCormack in the last 16, earned a 12-4 decision at the Sports Palace in Astana, Kazakhstan.
