Irish Boxers Bring Four Medals Home From Minsk

boxIrish Boxers John Joe Nevin & Jason Quigley have won gold at the European Championships in Minsk while Michael Conlon & Paddy Barnes came home with silver.

John Joe Nevin beat Nikola Butsenko of Ukraine in the bantamweight final to claim gold. Nevin was comfortable throughout the fight and had a little more to offer than his opponent.Jason Quigley had a superb start to his fight against Juratoni, but got a little tired in the third round against his opponent. However he had done enough at the start of the fight to earn him a gold medal in the middleweight division.

Michael Conlon was unfortunate not to claim victory after a split decision went against him in his fight with Welshman Andrew Selby.

Paddy Barnes withdrew from his final due against Russia’s David Ayrapetyan due to a fractured nose but still came home with a medal from the championships in Minsk. The Irish boxers can be delighted with returning with medals after impressing in the European championships.
