European U/22 champion Amy Broadhurst claimed gold at the Golden Girl Box Cup in Boras, Sweden yesterday.
But European Youth and Junior champions Daina Moorehouse and Lauren Dempsey had to settle for silver.
Broadhurst convincingly beat Russia’s Alexandra Ordina in the light-welter final on a unanimous decision to take home the 64kg title.
But Dempsey was unlucky to lose on a 3-2 split verdict to Thailand’s Olympic and World Youth champion Panpatchara Somnuek in the featherweight decider.
“I thought I done enough to win it and so did my coaches and everyone else in the stadium. But I’m delighted with my performance as she’s a year older than me and is the World and Youth Olympic champion, I hope I will get her again,” said Dempsey of the Ryston BC.
Moorehouse was beaten on a unanimous decision by Thai light-fly and World Youth silver medallist Nillada Meekon in the 48kg final.
