Former European Elite champion Ray Moylette and Ross Hickey, a European Elite bronze medallist, are on course to meet for a third time in the semi-finals of the National Elite Championships next Friday.

Both men, who  claimed victories over Jason Conroy and Niall Murray on the opening night of the 2015 Elite Championships last evening, have met twice already – both bouts were classics – and share one victory each.

“It’s good to have a derby to keep things fiery,” said Moylette, a gold medallist at the 2008 AIBA World Youth Championships in Mexico and the 2010 Elite champion, ahead of the eagerly anticipated light-welterweight clash.

“It should be good, looking forward too it,” said Hickey, a four-time Elite champion.
