on the same grounds Mickey Coveney has lost his last 8 on the trot and he has got sanctioned to box for the title again,

Now i really want to see more irish title fights as much as any Irish fight fan but is this demeaning the title and past title holders a bit?

I think to a point they can. I mean with the way things are going we're gonna have débutantes fighting for the Irish title, and I'm not talking Olympic/World medallists or even Irish amateur champions which you could almost justify, but fighters with lesser amateur backgrounds than that.

3-0 without an 8 rounder behind him is not enough for a man to be fighting for the Irish title imo. The Coveney situation is every bit as bad aswell.

At 27 he'd be leaving it a bit late to turn pro at the lower weights come Rio.
I'd love to see him turn pro now as regards best ever amateur..

hes got 2 world medals and an olympic medal

I also think if he had have won the gold he would have won the val barker award on the strength of his semi final win...

I think Eade is retired or at least semi retired. I know he has been offered fights over the last year and not taken them for whatever reason.

Supposedly the 6 rounder in Dundalk listed on BoxRec was really an 8 rounder.
