      Edgar Vuskans B2 46kg Clubs for Young People NI Champion 2013


CYP Boxing Championships

The eagerly anticipated Clubs for Young People Boxing Championships were contested over two busy days last weekend, 1st and 2nd June at Pegasus Boxing Club Downpatrick.

Glengormley’s Edgar Vuskans claimed the B2 46kg title via two absorbing contests. For the semifinal he was in command  for all three rounds winning by unanimous decision, all 3 judges with the new scoring 10-9 system, as being used at the European Championships this week.

Sundays final seen Edgar clash with Terrence McDonagh from Omagh Boys Club and again Edgar was victorious with a unanimous decision. Danny McGrinder, local accountant and coach at Glengormley commented, “Well done to Edgar being crowned CYP Champion, the lads first title of many to come I’m sure. He never misses training, going the extra mile with road work and continually working on new techniques to improve his repertoire of punches and fitness.”

The annual championships are organised by Harry Cunningham Antrim VP and the Antrim and Down/Armagh Boards on behalf of Clubs for Young People. A selection of boxers will represent CYP NI in the UK Championships later in the year.
