It’s time for the second-last edition of the Liffey Crane Hire Irish Boxer of the Month award for 2019.

A big November has provided us with a closely-fought competition.

With pro success abroad and big amateur movements at home, it was hard to pick a winner this time round but one young man soared ahead in the polls.

Without further ado, the winner of the vote is…

Jude Gallagher


The Newtownstewart flyweight made a statement on his move to the adult ranks.

The Two Castles fighter, who also had Eric Donovan in his corner, won the Elite title at the National Stadium following some wins that sent minor shockwaves through the division.

Gallagher eliminated hotly-tipped reigning champ Adam Hession before defeating Regan Buckley the final – performances which say him also named Boxer of the Championships.


Coming in second, for the second poll in a row, was Enniskerry’s Daina Moorehouse who won Intermediate and Elite titles – while Bray’s Katie Taylor finished third after claiming world title honours at her second weight..
