Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

Syd­ney’s Tay­lor Ross will be bring­ing home a bronze medal from an in­ter­na­tional box­ing com­pe­ti­tion in Ser­bia. The 17-yearold mem­ber of Team Canada dropped a split de­ci­sion to Hun­gar­ian Franni Szokol in her semi­fi­nal bout on Fri­day at the Golden Gloves of Vo­jvo­d­ina In­ter­na­tional Box­ing Tour­na­ment. Ross had ad­vanced to the semi­fi­nals with a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion over Pol­ish na­tional cham­pion Pa­trycia Mrozin­ska on Thurs­day. The trip to Ser­bia marks the sec­ond time in three months that the Whit­ney Pier fighter, who is coached by fa­ther Brad at the Syd­ney Box­ing Club, has fought over­seas. In May, Ross jour­neyed to Tai­wan where she com­peted at the AIBA Ju­nior/Youth Women’s World Box­ing Cham­pi­onships.
