CLANCY SHINES IN DUBLIN TO TAKE WBC ACLAIM

22 Mar 2019


Ireland’s Sean Clancy is the new WBC MuayThai super-lightweight International champion after defeating Australia’s Roy Wills in a pulsating encounter in Dublin, Ireland, on Saturday the 16th of March.

The contest was the co-main event on a special show held in Dublin to celebrate St. Patrick’s day. The luck of the Irish for shone through for Cork native, Clancy, as he battled his way through five grueling rounds to claim the vacant title.

The contest was one of epic proportions as both combatants left everything in the ring over fifteen minutes of MuayThai action, with every weapon available them, utilized throughout!

The opening round saw both fighters looking a little tense, it looked — as least aesthetically — that Wills seemed the more composed and landed the cleaner, more effective shots in the opening stanza.

Clancy for his part, really came to life halfway through the second round as he started to match Roy Wills workrate, as they traded a plethora of elbows and punches to the final bell of that round.

Rounds three and four were more of the same as the crowd in attendance were treated to a display of pure heart, grit and tenacity from both fighters.

As the bell rang to open the fifth and final round there was a sense around the arena that the contest could go either way, and for those last three minutes it was a case of that as yet again both men tested each other’s toughness right to the fiancé bell.

The three ringside judges scored the contest: Judge 1 saw it 50-45 for Wills, Judge 2 went 48-47 in favor of Clancy, whilst Judge 3 scored it 49-48 to the new WBC MuayThai International super-lightweight champion, Ireland’s Sean Clancy.

On behalf of the entire team at the World Boxing Council we would like to congratulate Sean and his team at on his night of crowning glory.
