Team Ireland win 11 medals at Feliks Stamm.

Team Ireland will return from the XXXVIII Feliks Stamm International Tournament with almost a dozen medals.

In all, 21 nations contested the tournament, including Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, France, Italy, England, Germany and the hosts.

48kg Nicole Buckley opened procedings today, against Ukraine. In a tough bout, Nicole brought home silver. Next up was 63kg Shauna Browne O’Keefe who contested superbly against England – and bagged gold. So, too, did 70kg Christina Desmond, stepping between the ropes against a home boxer. 57kg Patryk Adamus also met home opposition and emulated Tina in bringing home the top prize. Rickey Nesbitt was the tournament’s 48kg walkover champ. Clubmate, 60kg Davey Joyce and 63.5kg JP Hale both came up against Uzbekistani boxers, and both men claim silver.

Coming home with bronze are 67kg Eugene McKeever, who had to withdraw through injury, 57kg Adam Hession, 66kg Grainne Walsh and 81+kg Judy Bobbett
