European Boxing Road to Tokyo - Paris Qualifiers

Team Ireland arrived in Paris on June 1st for the upcoming European Boxing Road to Tokyo Event taking place from June 4th-8th in Le Grand Dome in Villebon-sur-Yvette. This tournament marks the resumption of the Qualification process for European athletes after it was paused in London in March 2020 due to the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

A nine-strong team has been selected for the tournament consisting of those who were originally still in the competition at the pausing of the competition & also the addition of Gytis Lisinskas who has replaced the retired Dean Gardiner in the super-heavyweight (91kg+) division.

The coaching team are extremely pleased with preparations over the last number of months & we are all excited to see these athletes have the opportunity to book their seat on the plane to Tokyo after the resilience & determination they have shown throughout a challenging year.
