IRELAND’S SEAN MARI and Gabriel Dossen will both box for at least a bronze medal at the European Championships after the two fighters won their bouts on day three of the tournament in Armenia today.

Flyweight Mari, of Dublin’s Monkstown Boxing Club, advanced past third seed Omer Ametovic of Serbia on a split 4-1 decision to book his place in the quarter-finals.

The 22-year-old is now just one fight away from securing a bronze medal and will return to the ring on Friday evening.

Meanwhile middleweight Dossen also has a medal in his sights after an impressive 5-0 win over fourth seed Mofid Rami Kiwan of Bulgaria.

Galway fighter Dossen, 22, will also be back in action on Friday.

Team captain Adam Hession was also out in today’s evening session, but lost on a 4-1 split decision to Belgium’s Vasile Usturoi in the featherweight division.

There is one more Irish fighter due in the ring today with lightweight JP Hale in action against number three seed Arslan Khatev of Finland.
