An­other record for Arklow boxer

June 2003

Bray People - - NEWS -

ARKLOW boxer James Moore be­came the only boxer to win three suc­ces­sive four-na­tions ti­tles in Cardiff last week­end. In his semi-fi­nal bout against James Way, he used his ex­plo­sive punch­ing to stop his op­po­nent in the third round un­der the 20 point rule.

James con­ceded only one hit in this con­test but un­for­tu­nately in­jured his right hand which left him with a tough bat­tle against Greg McEwan from Scot­land - the Com­mon­wealth bronze medal­ist.

It was nip and tuck stuff in the fi­nal with the lead chang­ing sev­eral times be­fore McEwan was warned for hold­ing. James Moore did all his scor­ing with his left jab and hook and at the end the score­board read 16 points to 15, giv­ing the Arklow man his hat-trick of wins.

James, now on the high per­for­mance team, is pre­par­ing for con­tests in Hun­gary and Den­mark be­fore trav­el­ling to Fin­land for a train­ing camp.
