Boxer Walsh is Youth Award winner

Wednesday, 25th October, 2017 5:08pm

The most recent winner of the Cork City and County Youth Award is boxer, Callum Walsh. Callum, who started boxing training at seven years old, recently won gold at the European Junior Championships. 

The momentum he gathered in the four bouts in five days took him all the way to the final where he used his jab to great effect to dismantle any hopes the home favourite Bulgarian had of winning the gold medal.

His Hungarian, German, Russian and Bulgarian opponents could not get a handle on Callum’s slick movement and lighting fast southpaw punches that carried him all the way to the European Junior Lightweight Champion title for 2017.

Callum is used to picking up titles having won five counties and three Munster titles before claiming All-Ireland and Junior Cadet titles last year before defending both his county and Munster titles this year.

Callum was presented with his award at the Metropole Hotel by manager Roger Russell and John Buckley of John Buckley Sports who jointly sponsor the monthly award scheme.
