Classy Cole to box for European medal
ENNISKERRY Boxing Club’s Cole Byrne will today (Wednesday) box for a medal in the EUBC European Schollboys and Schoolgirls Boxing Championships in Tbilisi having won both of his bouts so far at 54kgs.
Talented Cole opened up his championships with a stunning 5-0 victory over Lithuanian boxer Dan Saslinskij.
He followed that on Monday of this week with another 5-0 victory, this time against Mehma Gasimli from Azerbaijan.
Those wins sent him through to the last eight where he will take on Adhan Kayouf of Israel this evening in the quarter-finals of the championships.
Should Cole navigate his way through this stage he will be guaranteed a medal and he would be boxing again on Friday evening.
The Enniskery Boxing Club star recently won his third All-Ireland crown and is one to watch for the future.
Cole’s club colleague Daina Moorehouse is busy preparing for the European Championships. Currently she is putting in the hard work at a five-day sparring camp in Edenderry ahead of those championships.
