Success for MU Boxing in 2016

Posted 29th Apr 2016
Author Aaron Doherty

It has been a successful first year for our club. With only a sports hall, a few sparring sessions in other clubs around Dublin and Kildare and our own effort, we managed to come home from the varsities with three medals. 67kg first year student, Paul Kenny, achieved a silver medal in the beginner category. He courageously powered through a tough final fight against a strong opponent and did the club proud. 75kg postgrad student, John King, came up against a very experienced and tricky fighter in his final of the intermediate category. He aslo came home to Maynooth with a silver medal. I luckily acquired a gold medal and national title in the intermediate 67kg category.
