Irish Boxer Bids For World Championship Final Place

Joe Ward fights this evening in the World championship semi final in Doha. The 21 year old meets Ishod Rasulov, whom he beat two years ago. Yesterday Michael Conlan guaranteed a silver medal with a win in his semi final-his final will take place on Wednesday. Michael O’Reilly’s semi final defeat over the weekend means he must fight on Thursday in an Olympic box off although there’s still a possibility he can reach Rio depending on other results.
