It has been a golden day for Ireland at the European Elite Boxing Championships in Bulgaria.
Westmeath’s Joe Ward has beaten Peter Mullenberg of the Netherlands to claim gold in the light-heavyweight decision.
Earlier, Michael Conlan won gold in the bantamweight division with a unanimous decision victory over Britain’s Qais Ashfaq.
