Moylette is no stranger to having his hand raised in victory in Turkey. The 2008 AIBA World Youth champion won gold at the 2011 European Elite Championships in Turkey.

Joe Ward also won gold the same day. The double gold saw Ireland finish in the top three in the medals table in Ankara..

Gozgec has one APB win under his belt from last season and also won Liventsev Memorial Tournament gold.
