The Kinletter man, a ten-time Irish champion, had been beaten by Cuba’s World champion Yordan Hernandez, but defeated Belarusian Maksim Kazlou and then swatted aside Jin-Nyong to return with bronze.

Gallagher qualified for the Youth Olympics thanks to a win over Netherlands’ Thomas Oomen at the World Youth Championships in Sofia.
