Kellie Harrington Guarantees Ireland at least one bronze in Boxing World Championships

November 20, 2018

Kellie Harrington guaranteed Ireland at least one bronze medal at the AIBA World Women’s Elite Championships in New Delhi, India. The Dublin lightweight beat Canada’s Caroline Veyre on a unanimous decision in this morning’s 60kg quarter-final  to take her place in Thursday’s semi-finals. Harrington, a silver medallist at light-welter at the 2016 World Elites in Kazakhstan, has now won her second successive medal at this level. Meanwhile, Dundalk light-welter Amy Broadhurst is in quarter-final action versus India’s Simranjit Baath Kaur at approximately 12.30pm (Irish time) today. A win for Broadhurst, who has won two fights so far on her World Elite debut in India, will assure Ireland of at least a second bronze. Tajikistan’s Shoira Zulkaynarova and China’s Dan Dou meet in the corresponding quarter-final.
