EAMONN LOUGHRAN, from Northern Ireland, has not been stripped of his World Boxing Organisation welterweight title, as had been feared after his withdrawal from his mandatory defence against the No 1 challenger, Manning Galloway of the United States, this Saturday. Instead Galloway has been ordered to fight the No 2 challenger, Angel Beltre of Santa Domingo, for the interim championship. The 23-year-old from Ballymena will automatically box the winner of the Galloway-Beltre fight.
