Boxing: Nevin Through

Boxer John-Joe Nevin booked his place in the final 16 of the bantamweight class in Beijing with a convincing 9-4 victory over Abdelhalim Ourradi( Alg).

The 18-year-old from Mullingar was never in any real trouble against his more experienced opponent and boxed his way to victory despite a two-point penalty. He now faces the dangoerus Mongolian Badar Uugan Enkhbat, a silver medal at the World Championships and ranked 5th in the world
