Lewis Dickey is celebrating yet again after he won his fourth Ulster title.

The 13-year-old Coleraine Inst pupil won his latest title in Newtownstewart.

Lewis overcame Gilford’s 54kg Irish champion Oisin O’Reilly in the 60kg Boy 3 division.

Lewis showed all his class to win a unanimous points decision. He will now travel to Dublin on Easter to fight for the Irish title, which he has won before.

“Lewis is in red hot form at the minute,” said his coach at Churchland Golden Gloves, Mickey Fleming.

“He has got himself back in great form again after illness and will be pushing all the way for another Irish title.”

Fellow Golden Gloves boxer Ryan Doherty just missed out on the 36kg Ulster title when he was pipped in the final. Ryan boxed really well to win two fights to get in the final.
