Whithorn Bravehearts’ boxer Tyler jolly travelled to Tulcea in Romania last week as part of Boxing Scotland’s six strong team of youth boxers.
Tyler won his semi-final bout with a unanimous decision against a Moldovain boxer which put him in the final against another Moldovian boxer. Tyler’s opponent was a strong, forward attacking boxer, but Tyler managed to out-manoeuvre him with his silky footwork and trade mark hooks, securing the win by a split decision.
The junior athletes were competing in the Danube Belt international tournament which is held outside in Tulcea town square. Team Scotland had an impressive four gold medals out of six.
