WEIGHT
Moved up from the 49kg category to 52kg in 2015. The move was deemed too close to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, where he lost in the first round to the unseeded Shakhabidin ZOIROV (UZB). "I’ve only moved up (to 52kg) not even a year yet, so just to get out here alone is a great experience. It does take time to build into that weight. I think in four years’ time I’ll be perfect for the weight." (irishtimes.com, 16 Aug 2016)
