Gearoid Clancy was defeated this morning in Australia.

The Galway lightweight took on Kiwi Nort Beauchamp at Club Punchbowl just outside Sydney and fell to a hard fought ten-round unanimous decision loss.

The reversal in the World Boxing Foundation International title clash sees Clancy fall to 5(1)-4(0), while his Christchurch opponent improves to 10(2)-1(0).

A second successive loss for Clancy, the Oughterard is scheduled to fight again in late October.

While the defeat will be disappointing, Clancy is very much part of the ‘records are for DJs’ camp and will be looking top hop straight back in to a big fight when he returns.
