TWELVE-year-old Kilcoo lad Lorcan Grant produce three action packed rounds of
boxing to become the Antrim B3 40kg champion recently.
The extremely fit champion from Rathfriland Boxing Club maintained a blistering pace for all
three rounds, picking shots on his opponent’s target area at will.
This is nothing more than Lorcan deserves as he is one of the most hard working and dedicated trainers in the club. Well done Lorcan.
Other entrants in the Championship were MJ McNulty and Carter Devlin. MJ had a great win in his semi-final but was pipped at the post in the final while Carter bowed out at the semi-final stage against the eventual winner.
It was great experience for the lads who will be in action again in March in the Antrim 6
