The Haringey Boxing Club stage their annual Box Cup event at Alexandra Palace in North London this weekend where a strong Munster Select team represents Ireland in both men's and women's events.
World 60kg champion Katie Taylor 'guests' for the Munster select team as does Kelly Harrington. Waterford's young "star of the future" Katy Bible had a good win on Friday and tomorrow meets Naomi Olenski of Amsterdam in the Female B 71kg final. Katie Taylor comes up against an 'old' adversary in Switzerland's Sandra Brugger and if she wins that is more than likely to meet Australian, Claire Gabriel in Sunday's final. Gabriel won the Prime Ministry Gold in Ankara when Taylor had to withdrtaw from the final due to a shoulder injury.
Barry Barnes and Rory O'Donoghue had early wins in the mens events and many more Munster Select boxers appear on Saturday and Sunday. Bouts start at 12 noon both days and for Board.ie members in the Greater London area just turn up and pay £10 on the door (adults) and £5 (U-16). Should be a great weekend with more than 350 entries over the 3 days
