Alnwick boxer Cyrus Pattinson has blasted his way into the 69kg final of a notable event in Slovakia.
He beat the competition’s Czech representative in the semi-final of the Slovakia Boxing Club Triebel tournament on a unanimous decision.
Cyrus forced a standing count in the second round and his opponent never recovered from that set-back.
He moves into tomorrow’s final against a very strong German boxer, who has beaten the 2012 Olympic quarter-finalist and the World bronze medallist from Iran en route to the final.
The Birtley Boxing Club member said on Instagram: “One thing’s for certain, I’m not here for the silver. Let’s bring back this gold!”
