A large crowd enjoyed the Coleraine Amateur Boxing Club’s annual fight night in Kelly’s, Portrush, on Friday night.

Three exciting exhibitions got the show underway with real class and potential champions of the future on display. During a great night of action the host Coleraine club won an impressive six out eight contests.

A shield in memory of former Coleraine boxer Chrissy Connor who tragically died was kindly donated and presented by the Connor family to Richard Langtry for ‘Boxer of the Year.’
