Amy picked for World Elite Championships

Dundalk boxer Amy Broadhurst has been selected for the upcoming Female Elite World Championships in India. Amy will travel to New Delhi with the Irish squad to take part in the second biggest competition after the Olympics where she will compete in the 64kg weight division.
Amy is one of the most decorated boxers Ireland has ever produced and is the proud holder of an amazing 15 national titles as well as being a two time European champion where she has won at both Junior and Youth level.
21-year old Amy has made no secret of the fact that her dream is to box in the Olympics and as part of that journey she continues to impress as she bids to prove she is the best in her weight class in the country. She is currently in a training camp in Germany along with the rest of the Irish squad preparing for the Elite World Championships where she will hope to bring home yet another medal to add to her ever increasing collection.
According to her father and coach Tony, Amy is raring to go for the championships which begin on November 15.
“Amy is thrilled to have been selected for the Irish squad for the Elite World Championships in India. She has been training really hard over the past few months which has been tough as she doesn’t get any funding. Thankfully she has recently got a sponsor on board with local company CTI offering their support and on behalf of Amy I’d like to thank Billy and everybody in CTI for that support. They’ve been great so far and it’s a huge positive for Amy to get a bit of sponsorship behind her. It means we can concentrate on the boxing and ensure she performs at her very best. We’d like to thank everybody who has sponsored/supported Amy over the last few months.
“With regards to the championships it is without doubt going to be a tough challenge but I have seen what she is capable of and if she performs at her best I believe she won’t be too far away from a medal. Myself and my wife Sheila will be over in India to support Amy and we know she will do everything she can to come back with a medal,” stated Tony.
