How to Watch Kellie Harrington Gold Medal Fight – Time and Details

Kellie Harrington fights for GOLD in Tokyo on Sunday morning.

The Irish star takes on Beatriz Ferreira for a place on the top of the podium in a mouthwatering best versus best Olympic lightweight decider.

Victory would see The Portland Row fighter become only Ireland’s third Olympic boxing gold medal winner after Michael Carruth in 1992 and Katie Taylor in 2012.

To achieve that the 2018 World Amateur Championship gold medal winner will have to defeat the 2019 World AmateurChampion. ​

It’s a cream of the crop lightweight match-up and the ideal way to bring the curtain down on what was a brilliant Irish fight display in Japan.

The fight gloves off at 6am Irish time and can be viewed on RTE2 television or online on the RTE Player.

Speaking about her semi-final win the Portland Row favourite said:

“To be very honest with you I fought Sudaporn in 2018. It was a chess match then, it was a chess match today. She’s very, very tricky. I wasn’t getting inside to get a bang because she hits hard with her back hand. She was throwing shots to the body but they were literally skimming my shirt.

“To me they weren’t counting because it was just like because a judge will only score something that’s a good shot and I felt that my shots were cleaner and so I felt like I won each round. Not by a long shot but again, like I said, you need to do what you need to do and I won each round – just by winning each round.”
