National Senior Elite Finals – RUNNING ORDER

The National Senior Elite Championships conclude this Friday (February 18th) at the National Stadium in Dublin.

16 finals will be decided on the South Circular Road, with 20 champions being crowned at the home of Irish boxing.

Rather than the usual lightest-to-heaviest running order, there is more of a mix this year.
