Team captain Dominic Bradley led the Irish boxers into action this evening in the Bahamas, but the Errigal lightweight would bow out of the Commonwealth Youth Games.

Bradley’s namesake Tiernan had claimed 60kg silver in the last edition of the tournament, but there would be no joy this time round.

The Derry boxer was in Last 16 action where he was defeated by talented Welsh teen Rhys Edwards in a competitive fight.

The next boxer in the ring for Northern Ireland will be bantamweight Colm Murphy, who is through the ropes after midnight tonight where he will face Scotland’s Ahmed Faraz.
