A CUT ABOVE THE REST! Ward secures fifth national senior title


Moate boxer Joe Ward secured his fifth national boxing title when disposing of the challenge of Anthony Browne of St Michael’s Dublin in the 81kg national final at the National Stadium last Friday night, however, there was disappointment for two other Westmeath boxers – Wayne Kelly of Ballynacargy and Kenneth Okungbowa from Athlone. Kelly was defeated by Sean McComb of the Holy Trinity Club in the 64kg final, while Okungbowa was ex-tremely disappointed with the judges decision after he was beaten by the experienced Darren O’Neill in the 91kg final.
