Boxing | Ward closing the gap on La Cruz

Joe Ward is getting closerToday in the Chemistry Cup he floored Cuban legend and long-time rival Julio César La Cruz in the opening round and lost a dubious 3-2 split-decisionThere's nothing in the difference between them now and we're still 2 years from Tokyo — (@Irishboxingcom) June 22, 2018 Ward is captain of the Irish boxing team, who endured a largely disappointing day at the tournament. Flyweight Conor Quinn, welterweight Kieran Molloy, and lightweight George Bates all lost their respective semi-finals, and will take home bronze medals of their own. However, heavyweight Kiril Afanasev will compete in tomorrow's final after being awarded a walkover. script async src="//">
