Jordan Moore now just one win from a medal following stylish victory at European U22s

Jordan Moore continued Ireland’s brilliant start at the European U22 Championships

The National U22 champion took on Ukrainian Adniry Tyshkovets in the Last 16 in Romania and scored a stylish win to move to being within one win of a medal at flyweight.

Willie Donoghue had defeated Tyshkovets to claim bronze at the European Youths in 2015, and Moore would score another Irish victory against the come-forward slugger, using his height and footwork well to take a rather comfortable win from the outside.

It is now two wins from two for Ireland following Kelyn Cassidy’s middleweight Round of 32 triumph yesterday.

Elite bantamweight champion Kurt Walker will be through the ropes shortly to face Adrian Kowal of Poland.
