Kieran Molloy lost out in his bid for gold at the Feliks Stamm Memorial in Poland tonight.
The Irish welter was beaten by Poland’s Mateusz Kostecki in Warsaw, with Molloy receiving a harsh public warning in mid-way through the first round.
Molloy claimed three wins out of four in four days in Warsaw and will be taking home silver after some fantastic performances in the Polish capital, including tonight’s battle of the southpaws with Kostecki.
France’s Rio 2016 silver medallist, Sofiane Oumiha, who was taken right down to the wire by James McGivern in the preliminaries, won gold tonight.
Myles Casey will be bringing home bronze from Warsaw.
Francis Keeling,Irish team manager in Warsaw, hailed Molloy’s performance tonight and the Irish squad in Warsaw.
Team Ireland are scheduled to arrive home via Dublin Airport at 4pm tomorrow.
