Fight Night!

THERE is no doubt that out of the ten fights that took place during the recent fight night, the bout of the evening was Kevin Gribben versus Chrissy Queg .

This had the big crowd on their feet from the opening bell, with Queg starting fast and winning the first round but then Gribben came into the fight in the second.

The last round was a thriller the two men never stopped punching with Kevin Gribben finishing the fitter but did not get the decision.

Another great fight was the heavy weight which saw Gavin Gillan getting a points decision over Big Ryan Smith.

Gillan had Smith down in the first 30 seconds and did very well to get into the fight Smith had Gillan holding on at the end of the last round a great testament to his fitness and determination.


Three of the up and coming boys, Oisin Doherty; Ricky Moore and Dillan Matchett all had good wins.

Coaches Dermet and T J.Hamill were very impressed with their performances.


Two great wins for Dylan Matchett and Reece McDonnell both inside the distance. After a slow first round both boys upped their game to stop their opponents in the third round.

Both boys are 14 years old but this is their first year boxing. Young Brian Lewis had a good win over Joel Bexter of Newington, Belfast. While Raymond Ward at 50kg also tasted victory.
