Dunshaughlin V Blackhall Fight Night

November 8, 2018

A huge crowd was enthralled at the White Collar Boxing Event organised between Dunshaughlin and Blackhall Gaels held in Chasers Nightclub in Dunboyne Castle on Friday night last. The event started with county star Caoimhin ‘King of the Ring’ King getting the better of Martin ‘The Nail Gun’ O’Neill. Thirteen more fights followed and the atmosphere amongst the partisan crowd reached fever pitch when the final bout between Niall ‘Sweets’ Kelly and Paul ‘Below the Belt’ Nestor began. Nestor needed to win so as to level the scores between the two teams and did so with a technical knockout when the unfortunate Kelly was forced to retire at the end of the second round with a nose injury. A draw was a fair result as the standard of boxing on show was a credit to the boxers involved and to Cathal O’Grady who trained the boxers for six weeks prior to the event.
Both clubs would like to thank Dunboyne Castle Hotel for the use of their lavish facilities for hosting this unique event. A big thank you also to Cathal O’Grady and his team for putting on a great show. Most of all we would like to thank all of the boxers for giving so generously of their time in the interest of both clubs. We would also like to extend our gratitude to our two very generous main sponsors of the night, SuperValu in Dunsh! aughlin and SuperValu in Maynooth, to all those who sponsored fights and boxers on the night and to all who attended the event or supported it in any way.
