Gytis Lisinskas suffers defeat in European Championships
Gytis Lisinskas lost his opening European under-22 Championship bout in Italy today.
The super heavyweight, who was last seen in European Olympic Qualifier action, suffered a points defeat to Vincenzo Fiaschetti in the evening session.
Lisinskas won the first round across the board but Fiaschetti grew into the contest and won rounds two and three 4-1 to take a 4-1 decision from a hard punching contest.
Earlier on Sunday Ellie Mai Gartland exited the tournament after defeat to Paige Richardson, England’s latest prospect.
Team Ireland have four fighters remaining in the contest Adam Hession, Dean Clancy, Kiern Molloy and Jack Marley all fight for bronze medals at least tomorrow.
