(AUG 11) A new International Club tournament, the Celtic Box Cup, was launched this week in the West Waterford town of Dungarvan, home of the Peter Crotty Ironman Gym and Dungarvan Sports Centre. The three day tournament, which was launched by 8 times former Irish Champion, Waterford’s Neil Gough, is scheduled to take place between September 27th and 29th. Several top names, both male and female are expected to take part.

This event is expected to attract up to 300 boxers plus coaches, officials and supporters, bringing the figure up to 700 for the three day boxing tournament. That figure, if achieved, would give a huge economic boost to the town at the end of the tourist season.

Dungarvan Town Council and local hotels, the Park Hotel and Lawlors ,have come on board to ensure the success of this competition which is also receiving aid from The Gathering, a yearlong festival which encourages former Irish residents plus their families and friends to visit Ireland in 2013.

The Sports Centre's reputation as a boxing venue has been enhanced in recent years by the successful hosting of the national teams of China, France, England and Russia, whilst Olympic Gold medallist Katie Taylor had a fine win there against England’s former European champion

Amanda Coulson in 2007 . That night saw Taylor’s hand raised in victory on the ‘old’ 15 point rule as she led the then world no 9 , by 19-4 when the referee stopped the contest in Round 2.

Taylor’s most recent win in Dungarvan was in March 2012 when she gained a unanimous points win over Liz Leddy of the United States. As we reported here at the time, Taylor had earlier that week defeated Leddy in Cork City in which the American had put up a gallant fight throughout the four rounds.

In Dungarvan ,Taylor was to have boxed N’yeetah Sherman also of the United States but she was injured and Leddy once again stepped into the ring to face the World champion. Taylor won another unanimous decision on that occasion but her Portland BC opponent again put up a brave fight in what was Taylor’s final bout before going to China where she won the World championship for the 3rd successive time on her march to London 2012 and Olympic Gold.

The attendance at the recent launch included the Mayor of Dungarvan, Cllr Theresa Wright and Mayor of Co Waterford, Cllr Damien Geoghegan, who both wished the organizers well and looked forward to the tournament.

Dungarvan's place on the world boxing map was highlighted and the fact that World and Olympic champions have donned their gloves in the ring at Dungarvan Sports Centre, among them Katie Taylor and Amir Khan.
