Don't know what good can come of a Northern Ireland Boxing Association. You'll just have lots of guys from nationalist areas fighting for the Republic instead like the football.
I can't see it effecting anything at all, as the IABA [an all Ireland body] still exists, so boxing for the "Republic" won't be an option, the boxers will still keep competing for Ireland. I think this N.I boxing association is simply a way to monitor the funds being handed over to the boxing clubs by the Assembly.

Oh I see. That's a relief. I got the impression that it would mean the end for the IABA as the organization is now. Thanks for clearing that up.

Sounds like O'kane-Eubank jnr was almost finalised and has fallen through. Not dead yet though-although I would be surprised if young Chris/Mick took it

I think Eubank is an unbelieveable talent. I think he beats O'Kane even now tbh.

I didn't think there is any sectarianism in boxing in Northern Ireland Haven't been to many fights up North but never seen anything really.

Its obvious that show last night, McSorley of Sandy Row bc has his own agenda and seems a right piece of work, ive been to cards up North and seen Protestant boxers box in the stadium and have never once heard any sectarian abuse !

I hope no other clubs follow them in leaving the IABA.
