Semi heartbreak for Tyler

Scotland boxer Tyler Jolly will go home with a bronze medal from the European Schoolboy Boxing Championships after losing the tightest of semi-finals against an Irish boxer in Dublin tonight.

Tyler was accompanied by his coach Tom Jolly, from the Whithorn Bravehearts ABC. After the bout, Tom told The Galloway Gazette: “Tyler boxed brilliant. There was over Over 100 bouts this week and Tyler Jolly’s was the only bout scored a draw resulting in a free score for each judge to decide. Unfortunately the home boxer got the decision.

“Tyler boxed out of this world and we are all proud of the wee man. He has already won Western District gold, Scottish gold, GB gold and now European Bronze medallist.

“Go Team Bravehearts!”
