In addition, local Jay Snodden weighed in at 56kg, while his opponent Filip Novak hit the scales at 53kg. “As both guys are 14 years old, the match will be fought under light contact rules and this allows for a 4 kg discrepancy in weight,” stated in the post weigh-in release.
Polish Jakub Krawiec was a last minute replacement for Johnny Smith, who was expected to face Eric McCormack in All-Ireland welterweight match up. However Krawiec didn’t make it to Belfast, as he “was detained in Warsaw Airport with passport issues”.
