Eight U18 Champions selected for Ireland v Wales International

Eight newly crowned U18 Irish champions are included in an Ireland squad to fight Wales next week.

Not long after a number of U22 National title winners helped Ireland to a 5-3 win over Scotland in Belfast a number of younger champs will look to do the same against Wales.

The Ireland versus Wales international will take place at the National Stadium on Friday, March 4.

10 bouts, in all, will be boxed in the first international event to be held at the stadium in 2 years.

The card begins at 7pm and will be live-streamed on IABA’s YouTube channel.
