Gabriel Dossen made it back to back wins with victory at the Bosckai Memorial in Hungary today.

The Galway middleweight, returning from injury, followed up his victory over Norway’s Mindougas Gedminas on a unanimous decision yesterday with victory over the home nation this afternoon.

The decorated underage graduate beat Robert Cservenka to progress to the semi finals and moves into the last four with a bronze medal in the bag.

Another Hungarian awaits in the last four, this time Dossen will face Zoltan Harsca with at least silver up for grabs in Thursday’s semi-finals.
