Gabriel Dossen got Ireland’s 2022 World Championship campaign off to a winning start this afternoon.
The only Irish fighter in opening day action showed all the skills he is regularly lauded for to secure victory in Yerevan, Armenia.
The Galway middleweight defeated a game Migue Entrena Cuadrado in bout 4 of Ring A’s evening session to progress to the Round of 16.
The Spanaird came looking for work throughout but Dossen showed skill, quality footwork, hand speed and class to ensure victory.
One judge did like the industry of Cuadrado but ultimately World Championships gold medal winner Aoife O’Rourke’s Olympic Galway clubmate deservedly progressed via a 4-1 split decission. business

Eagleson, contesting at 54kg, meets Turkey’s Muhammet Acli – bout 17 of the tournament.
