Boxing News - - Amateurs -

QUAL­ITY Euro­pean box­ers were in ac­tion at the Box-am Tour­na­ment in Tener­ife, which con­cluded on Novem­ber 4. Com­mon­wealth Games medal­list Ash­ley Williams took on Span­ish Olympian, and Euro­pean medal­list, Sa­muel Car­mona in his home­land. Car­mona, who elim­i­nated Paddy Barnes from Rio 2016, won a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion and went on to take gold in the tour­na­ment.

“A tough fight that I have learned a lot from. I give it my all but the bet­ter man won on the day,” Williams said.

The Welsh team did see Lynsey

Hold­away win gold, out­point­ing both Spain’s Ro­cio Suarez and then Ro­ma­nia’s Ste­luta Duta.

Among the other per­son­al­i­ties in­volved, Ro­ma­nian su­per-heavy

Mi­hai Nis­tor, the last man to halt An­thony Joshua lest we for­get, was in ac­tion. He went straight into the fi­nal and knocked out Spain’s

Cris­tian Brito in three rounds.

Ir­ish duo Kelly Har­ring­ton at light­weight and wel­ter­weight Grainne Walsh won their fi­nals. Har­ring­ton beat Ro­ma­nia’s Cristina Cosma unan­i­mously while Walsh took a split de­ci­sion over Welsh boxer Rosie Ec­cles.
