WORLD Elite silver medallist Kellie Harrington showed her class to secure her eighth Elite belt on a unanimous decision over Dundalk southpaw Amy Broadhurst at Dublin's National Stadium last night.

Broadhurst, a European Youth champion, battled the slick Dubliner all the way down to the final bell, but Harrington, who has dropped down from light-welter to lightweight, repeatedly picked off her shots to successfully defend her title.

Meanwhile, former champion Ceire Smith beat World Junior medalist Niamh Earley. The Virginian BC flyweight earned a unanimous decision over her Kildare opponent to claim the flyweight crown.

Russia-born Kiril Afanasev, Michaela Walsh, Shannon Sweeney, Nell Fox and Lauren Hogan also had their hands raised in victory. Irish head coach Zaur Antia will select a 14-strong squad for  three away meetings with Billy Walsh's USA in Boston, Birmingham and Manchester next month following last night's finals.

2I have some good guys and gals coming through and competition for places is intense as we enter the Olympic cycle. We're looking forward to what should be a top class international in March," said former Irish head coach Walsh who is now chief seconds with the USA.
