Olympian Donnelly in World Series Boxing action this weekend

Rio 2016 Olympian Steven Donnelly is in action for his Hussars of Poland side versus Argentina in the World Series of Boxing (WSB) in Poland on Friday night.

The All Saints BC welter meets Maximiliano Ocampo over five rounds in Krakow.

Nineteen-year-old Ocampo has lost one WSB fight this season in the WSB, as has Donnelly, albeit against Hungary’s ex European Elite champion Balaz Bacskai in his first fight of 2016 following an explosive encounter in Venezuela in February.

Irish coach Dmitry Dmitruk will be working Donnelly’s corner in Krakow.

Donnelly qualified for Rio 2016 boxing for the Hussars of Poland in the WSB last season.
