VIDEO: Irvine talks World Championship exit

Brendan Irvine had to settle for a top-eight finish.The European Games silver medallist lost to Cuba’s Joahnys Argilagos on a unanimous decision in the light-fly quarter-final.

The Cuban, who had tightened up his guard considerably from his more liberal approach to the art of defence in his previous victory before today,won all three rounds, Irwin having a good second.

The nineteen-year-old Irish Elite champion said he was disappointed with the result, but sportingly complimented his opponent.
