Kellie Harrington

Before Harrington takes to the ring, boxing journalist Kevin Byrne joined The Olympics Show on Off The Ball to assess the Irish boxers' performances in Tokyo.

"We should celebrate Aidan Walsh's bronze medal. Hopefully Kellie Harrington can get over the line and go and get gold. There has only been two Irish gold medallists in the past and Kellie is looking good. She was businesslike and got the job done, she didn't look like she overextended herself or showed her full arsenal or form," he said.

"But that form is there, we saw it in the European qualifiers and she's been building towards these games. She gave a very mature interview afterwards, and she's cool - she's going to be very hard to stop.

"If Kellie Harrington wins a gold medal then it's a great games for Ireland. We don't win gold medals very often."

Indeed are proud to support Team Ireland at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Indeed believes the world works better when people are given every opportunity to unleash their true talents. #TalentUnleashed
