The LAW-less won – It’s World Junior Gold for Siofra Lawless

Siofra Lawless laid down the law and created in Yerevan this afternoon claiming World Championships gold after a sensational display.

The queen of Four Kings BC was dominant from start to finish bruising and cruising her way to the top of the podium.

Lawless won every round on every card against India’s Sachin Shurshti Sathe, winning the final 5-0 to become Ireland’s first ever female World Junior Champion since Ciara Ginty in 2013.

The latest talent to emerge from Bray is World Junior Champion courtesy of the one-sided win and can now lay claim to be the best 63kg fighter at her age grade on the planet.

The victory means Ireland come home with two gold and a bronze, following John Donoghue’s gold medal victory yesterday and Mary McDonagh’s bronze win.

Lawless also joins the like of Joe Ward and Willie Donoghue as Irish World Junior Championships gold medal winners.
