CARRICKMACROSS CHEERS CHRISTINA’S BOXING SUCCESS

8 May 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

Michael Fisher “Welcome home, champ!” said the posters in the shop windows. A crowd of around 500 welcomed home the victorious boxer Christina McMahon in Carrickmacross on Tuesday night.  Christina won the interim WBC female bantamweight world title on Saturday, defeating her Zambian opponent in Lusaka in a tough contest over ten rounds. So she is now one fight away from the full title. Christina was given a civic reception and was presented with gifts from Monaghan County Council, Carrickmacross-Castleblayney Municipal District and the Carrickmacross Festival Committee, which helped to organise the event.
