Current AIBA World Junior champion Ciara Ginty had to settle for a silver medal at the Olympic Youth Championships afters losing her 60kg final to Jajaira Gonzalez of the USA in Nanjing, China.

Gonzalez, the current AIBA World Youth champion, earned a unanimous decision over the Mayo lightweight over four, two minute rounds.

Ginty, who qualified for Nanjing through the 2014 AIBA World Youth Championships won two of her three bouts in China and is the first Irish boxer to appear in an Olympic Youth final since Belfast’s Ryan Burnett, who has since turned professional with Ricky Hatton, won gold in Singapore in 2010.

Donegal heavyweight Michael Gallagher claimed bronze in Nanjing and Cork middleweight Christina Desmond finished in fourth  in the 75kg class.
