Irish Boxing Prospect James Moore In Search Of New Trainer

By Boxing Press June 18th, 2008 All Press Releases

Junior middleweight James Moore, 15-1 (10), a native of County Wicklow, Ireland, who fights out of Queens, New York, incurred his first defeat at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, New York, on June 4.

Gabriel Rosado, 10-2 (6 ), of Philadelphia , won a unanimous eight round decision by scores of 77-74, 78-73 and 76-74.

The scoring has caused some controversy because many observers, including Teddy Atlas, who was announcing the fight on ESPN 2, thought Moore did enough to win. Moore was knocked down in the fifth round, but a compelling argument can be made that he won at least five – and quite possibly six – of the other rounds.

Moore, a veteran of 314 amateur fights and the longtime captain of the Irish national amateur team, is now regrouping as he plans to come back stronger than ever in the very near future.

Several changes are afoot in the Moore camp, one of which has been the release of longtime trainer Harry Keitt.

While members of Moore's camp spoke highly of Keitt, it was decided that the fighter would be best served by moving in a new direction. Several trainers are now being considered to begin working with Moore, who is still considered a bright prospect in a red-hot division.
