AN 11-year-old Irish boxer has set his sights on reaching the All-Ireland Final to impress his grandfather in London who has never seen him box.

Soni Gaffney from west Cork made a video (below) for his grandfather – a former professional boxer – showing off his skills during various training sessions.

Young Soni – who boxes for Dunmanway Boxing Club – is an ambitious boxer, recently claiming the Cork County Champion crown. Now, he’s aiming to reach the All-Ireland Final, a match that he’s hoping his grandfather will travel to Ireland for.
