Ulster Elite Senior Championships – FULL DRAW

The draw for the resurgent Ulster Elite Senior Championships was made this afternoon.

This year has seen around double the amount of entries as in recent editions, with 51 boxers hitting the scales today in various locations around the province

With the finals night on Friday November 24th returning to the Ulster Hall, and results factoring into selection for the Northern Irish team for next year’s Commonwealth Games, some of Ulster’s biggest names have entered.

16 weights will be represented over three nights, with 13 finals – Sarah Close, Michaela Walsh, and Alanna Nihell have all received walkovers

No female bantamweights, light welters, welters (which is a Commonwealth Games weight), or heavyweights weighed in.
