Carndonagh ABC boxer Jessica Clarke heads for Switzerland for an international bout to kick-start her 2017 campaign.

A two-time Irish champion, Clarke travels to Frenkendorf, Switzerland as part of a St Brigid’s, Edenderry selection, having been chosen by coach Liam Brereton.

Clarke is up against Elaina Pileggi, Switzerland’s youth champion at 48kgs.

“I’m really excited for it – it’s a great opportunity for me before my Championships all start,” Clarke said.

The fight takes place next Saturday, February 18.
