RESULTS: The Liffey Crane Hire Irish Boxer of the Month – NOVEMBER

Following three days of voting in what was the closest call yet, The Liffey Crane Hire Boxer of the Month for October has been chosen.

Another busy month for Irish boxing, little separated the contenders

So without further ado, the Liffey Crane Hire Irish Boxer of the month for November is:

James McGivern
The underage medal machine announced himself on the senior scene with a sensational Ulster Elite Championships win.

The Belfast lightweight took top honours in the provincial tournament, and took the Best Overall Boxer award in the process.

McGivern defeated Irish U22 champion Dylan Duffy in the semis before an astounding display against Commonwealth bronze medalist Sean Duffy.

Showing he can both box and fight, the teenager claimed a clear win and now looks likely to be picked for the Northern Ireland team for next year’s Commonwealth Games in Australia.


Second place went to Katelynn Phelan who won World Youth bronze, while Jono Carroll finished third following his impressive win over Humberto De Santiago in Belfast.
