Sligo boxer Jordan Myers among the medals in Turkey

Sligo youngster Jordan Myers has secured at least a bronze medal of the European Youth Championships in Turkey this afternoon.

The middleweight claimed an impressive win against Serbian Djozdic Buksic and will take on a Russian opponent in Friday’s semi-finals.

The Sligo City Boxing Club fighter was previously a gold medallist at the European Schoolboys Championship in 2013.

He is the second member of the Irish team to secure a medal in Turkey, along with Galway’s Gabriel Dossen.
