Galway fighter Gabriel Dossen has won gold for Ireland at the European Boxing Championships in Armenia.

The 22-year-old beat England's Lewis Richardson on all of the judges' scorecards in the Middleweight final on Monday.

Dossen's right jab was a big problem for Richardson throughout the bout.

His powerful combinations and heavy shots put the win beyond doubt as the fight developed.

He joins Irish fighters such as Michael Conlan, John Joe Nevin, Jason Quigley, Paddy Barnes, Joe Ward and Ray Moylette who have won European Championships gold medals.

Earlier on in the day, 19-year-old Dylan James Eagleson won a silver medal.

He lost his Bantamweight final bout to Bilal Bennama of France, but will still return from Yerevan with the silver.
