Irish International Results – Tony Browne beats Olympian

Following on from Gabriel Dossen’s exploits on Friday, Tony Browne has defeated a elite Olympian.

The Dublin heavyweight was in action in the Eindhoven Box Cup in the Netherlands and defeated Peter Mullenberg on a 3-2 split after a war in yesterday’s semi-finals.

Browne, still adjusting to the higher weight, became the first man to defeat 2016 Olympian and multi-international medallist Mullenberg in Holland and will now face Coup├ę Seydi in this afternoon’s final.

Dossen, who beat 2008 Olympian Herry Biembe in the quarters, overcame England’s Ramtin Musah in the semis, avenging a defeat from earlier this year. The Galway middleweight will now face Holland’s Max van der Pas in the final.

Swords light welter Michael Avetisian also scored a unanimous win over Sean Spence and will now face Monaco’s Hugo Micallef in the final.

There was no joy, however, for Alanna Nihell who was beaten on a 4-1 split by Chelsey Heijen.
