The Ulster Elite finals will be decided at the Ulster Hall in Belfast tonight.

Boxing begins at 7.15pm sharp and ten bouts will be completed.

John Paul Hale and Colm Murphy renew acquaintances in the final bout of the Championships.

Both men served up an absolute classic the last time they met and more of the same is expected this evening at the flagship tournament of Ulster boxing.

Sionnan McKenna and Clodagh McComiskey get the action underway in the bantam class.
