Denis is Ulster Senior Champion thumbnailTHE Sacred Heart's Denis Boriskins showed tremendous courage to win the Ulster Senior Boxing championship title at Belfast’s Dockers Club on Friday evening.

DENIS Boriskins is the Ulster Senior Boxing champion.

At Belfast's Dockers Club on Friday evening the Sacred Heart super-heavyweight, boxing at 90 plus kilos, won a majority decision over Martin McCoey.

It was a tremendous contest with Boriskins showing amazing courage and determination to battle back after his opponent caught him with a left hook in the first round, then the referee handing the Sacred Heart lad a count of eight.

However, the big man kept plugging away and hit McCoey with some wicked left jabs and in the last round he caught his rival with some super right hands.

Sacred heart coach Seamus McCormick told the Democrat: "It was a really exciting contest, easily the fight of the night, and Denis showed with his guts and ability that he's a deserving Ulster Champion."
