SILVER LINING – John Donoghue reaches World Junior Final

John Donoghue is a World Junior Championships finalist.

The 15-year-old prospect traded in his 63kg bronze medal for silver in Yerevan today.

The Olympic Mullingar boxer defeated Greece’s Emmanouil Fotiadis by unanimous decision to reach the decider.

The victory was Donoghue’s fourth in the tournament and a fighter that was hours away from being withdrawn at the quarter-final stage is now just one win away from a sensational gold.

Mary McDonagh will come home with bronze as India’s Akansh Phalasw halted her World Junior run at the semi-final stage.
