Lynch Takes The Title In Drogheda

Austin Lynch puts on a champion’s performance in Drogheda’s TLT Theatre to take the home the Cage Legacy Amateur Bantamweight title…

Kyuzo’s Austin Lynch took home the first of what we hope will be many amateur titles at Cage Legacy in Drogheda over the October Bank Holiday weekend. Clinical striking and impressive take down defence was the order of the day as Lynch took all three rounds against the very tough Padraig Magee.

Magee already had one up on Lynch, having defeated him in his debut 2 years ago, so it was a case of sweet revenge as well as a major title victory for the Finglas man.

The first round was a statement of intent from Lynch, as he landed heavy blows while reversing a takedown attempt from Magee. The second round was more of the same, and while Magee did manage to secure a takedown, it’s effects were limited as Lynch defended well. The final round was more of the same with clinical counter-striking scoring highly on the judges scorecards, each of whom gave the bout to Lynch.

Another impressive performance from the 19 year old Kyuzo man, who takes his record to 5-2 and who showed massive character in coming back from his previous loss.
