Injuries

Broken thumb while sparring fellow boxer, Brendan IRVINE (NIR), in November 2017 and was ruled out of the 2017 Ulster Elite Championships. (irishnews.com, 10 nov 2017)


Reason: Practiced Taijutsu between the ages of seven and 10. The gym shut its doors in 2002 and that made him visit his local boxing facility. (the42.ie, 26 Jul 2017)
