Walsh Defeated in Close Contest

June 23, 2015

Dean Walsh however, was defeated by Germany’s Kastriot Sopa in the light welterweight quarter-finals in a very close encounter.

A second round warning put the Irish boxer under huge pressure going into the final round and Walsh was unable to make up the difference as the awkward German took the contest on a unanimous 3-0 decision to progress.

Adam Nolan (21:00pm Baku Time) is the final Irish boxer to fight in today’s quarter-final bouts.
