The last time Team Ireland contested in the Armenian capital was at the 2022 Men’s European Championships – Gabriel Dossen came home with middleweight gold, and Dylan Eagleson claimed bantamweight silver.

The World Championships will take place from November 22nd to December 4th, and boxing begins on Friday.

The opening ceremony will take place on Thursday, and you can watch live here:
