GB Boxing was represented by a team of four boxers at the China International Open Boxing Tournament, which was held in Guiyang this week.

Sandy Ryan powered her way into the semi finals of the competition on Wednesday with a TKO in the fourth round of her contest against Chen Chin Ling of Chinese Taipei. The Derby-based boxer was unfortunate in her semi final against Chinese boxer Junhua Yin, losing out to a unanimous decision. Sandy returns with a well-earned bronze.


Jack Bateson was denied a place in the semi finals, losing a unanimous decision to Chang Yong of China in his quarter final bout on Thursday. The Burmantofts boxer won a split decision over Ihor Sopinskyi in his 52kg preliminary on Monday.

Repton's Sam McNess was beaten in the preliminaries by Amin Ghasemipour of Iran on a unanimous points decision at 69kg, and Danny Williams competed against Ukrainian Gregorg Manukyan in his 91kg preliminary. The GB corner retired their boxer following two counts in the first round and another in the second.


Jake Ball (81kg) and Felix Cash (75kg) had to be withdrawn from the competition due to illness. Both boxers enjoyed pre-tournament training with the Chinese national team prior to the tournament.
