Four Ulster boxers kept their Olympic Games hopes alive by claiming Irish national titles on Friday night.

Immaculata pair Martin Lindsay and Martin Rogan claimed the featherweight and super-heavyweight titles while Paul McCloskey and Andy Murray also won.

A disappointment was Brian Gillen's 19-16 defeat against Athy's Eric Donovan in the bantamweight final.

Cavan man Murray defeated Dockers former national champion Noel Monteith 15-5 in the lightweight final.

Lindsay claimed a 17-8 win over Moate's Eamon Touhey in the featherweight final.

The Immaculata man forged an eight-point lead in the opening round and was always in control.

Rogan stopped Crumlin's Jimmy Upton in the second round of their contest to claim his first national senior title.

Paul McCloskey needed to produce some great final round shots to edge out former champion Michael Kelly 17-16 in the light-welterweight decider.

The big Ulster disappointment of the night was Gillen's defeat in the bantamweight final.

A bad second round proved crucial with Donovan outscoring Gillen by seven points to lead 12-5.

Gillen bravely battled back in the final two sessions but the damage had been already done.
