GB Boxing was represented by a team of five boxers at the annual international Tammer Tournament in Tampere, Finland, this week.
Sean McGoldrick took the top spot on the podium at 56kg, following a comprehensive defeat over Poland's Adrian Kowal. There were silver medals for Joe Maphosa, who suffered a narrow defeat to Scotland's Aqeel Ahmed at 49kg, and Ekow Essuman, who lost a split decision to experienced Hungarian Balazs Bacskai at 69kg.
After winning his quarter-final against Norwegian Kevin Melhus, Lawrence Okolie was forced to withdraw from the competition due to injury, and Antony Fowler suffered a defeat in his 75kg quarter-final against Christian Mbilli Assomi of France.
