Nevin’s first up

August 5, 2012

John Joe Nevin goes head to head with Oscar Valdez in a bantamweight quarter-final this evening at the Excel Centre.

The Mexican qualified for the last Games at the age of 17 and became the first boxer from his country to take a medal at the world championships, taking a bronze in 2009.

Nevin has looked comfortable in these games so far but will have to be in top form to make the semi-finals.
