Turkey and Finland Results
by Bernard O'Neill

(APR 11) Katie Taylor picked up the boxer of the tournament award at the men's and women's Prime Ministry Tournament in Ankara, Turkey despite having to withdraw from today's final with Claire Ghabrial of Australia through injury.

Taylor was hot favourite to win gold but was withdrawn from Sunday's lightweight final after picking up an arm injury in Saturday's semi final victory over Turkey's Irkan Melek.

Taylor advanced to the final after Melek was retired by her own corner near the end of the second round of Saturday's last four clash in Ankara.  The Irishwoman was 6-0 up.

However, the Bray woman picked up an injury to the bicep in her right hand and Irish head-coach Billy Walsh and her coach and dad Peter withdrew the World and European champ from Sunday's final.

Despite having to pull out of the final however, Taylor still picked up the best boxer award after scoring 35 points and conceding just two in her four bouts to the 60kg final.

Ireland won one silver and two bronze medals in Turkey courtesy of Taylor, Gary Molloy and World Youth champ Ray Moylette.

Meanwhile, David Oliver Joyce (pictured) won gold and scooped the boxer of the tournament award at the Gee Bee Multi Nations in Helsinki, Finland today.

Joyce, the current European Union featherweight champ, beat Hurshib Pojibaev of Uzbekistan on a count-back to finished on top of the lightweight podium following three wins in three days.

But there was finals disappointment for Declan Geraghty, Ryan Lindberg and Eamon O'Kane, who was trading middleweight leather with two times World champ, Abbos Atoev of Uzbekistan.

O'Kane, a bronze medal winner at the 2008 European Championships, was leading going into the last round but the fight was stopped after the Belfast man was caught with a body shot.

Geraghty, who picked up a hand injury in the second, was edged out 10-9 by Beijing Olympian Vincenzo Picardi of Italy and Lindberg retired because of a cut near his left eye in the third versus ex Russian World champ, Sergei Vodopianos.

The six man Irish squad, which also included Willie McLaughlin and Tommy McCarthy, won one gold, three silver and one bronze in Helsinki and Irish team manager, Paddy Barnes senior, was delighted with the haul.

"The lads were in against World champions and Olympians and the quality was very high. When you consider the quality opposition the lads were boxing against we are delighted with the five medals," he said.
