March 16, 2022 | by Matt Halfpenny


There was further reason to be pleased for the Great Britain boxers on day three at the EUBC European Under-22 Championships 2022 as three of the four in action made progress.

With bouts beoing staged in Porec, Croatia, Wales’ Ioan Croft was a unanimous points decision winner over Djejian Toskic of Serbia at Under 67kg.

Brother and fellow countryman Garan Croft also won by the same margin against Don Emini of Norway at Under 71kg.

Scotland’s Sam Hickey continued the British success as he won his Under 75kg bout with Spain’s Pablo Coy by a 3-0 split decision.

However, Wales’ Under 80kg boxer, Taylor Bevan, was unable to make it four wins from four as he dropped a close 3-2 split decision to Georgia’s Luka Matchutadze.

This evening will see the first of the English boxers get into the action as New Kings’ Sameenah Toussaint gets her campaign underway with a last 16 bout at Under 57kg against Poland’s Julia Szeremete (5pm UK time).
