Price wins gold after appeal in World Boxing Championships

Share This

Wales’ Lauren Price has won gold at the Women’s World Boxing Championships in Russia after a successful appeal.
The middleweight initially lost the final against the Netherlands’ Nouchka Fontijn on a split decision.
Three judges had given the fight to Fontijn (30-27, 30-27 and 29-28), while two had Price ahead 29-28, but GB Boxing appealed and the decision was overturned.
Price, 25, is the first Welsh boxer to win World Championship gold.
The Commonwealth Games champion won bronze in the same event at last year’s Championships.
