Gabriel Dossen put his name on a very special list when he won European Championships middle gold yesterday.

The Galway 22-year-old claimed Ireland’s 23rd Elite Senior European gold when he defeated Lewis Richardson in Armenia on Monday.

The win also sees the southpaw talent put his name alongside some of the best to ever wear the Irish vest on a unique list of European gold medal winners.
