Ireland claimed five medals at the IMMAF/WMMAA world championships in Bahrain, with Straight Blast Gym’s Lee Hammond leading the way as he claimed gold.

Hammond overcame Marko Sarasjarvi of Finland, winning the Unified Lightweight World Championship via a split decision.

Ger Harris also took gold and he claimed victory over Russia's Shamil Bahachalev in the Junior Flyweight final with a championship round required after the judges ruled a majority draw.

It was gold for Ryan Spillane too, but he did not have to fight with his final opponent Chaddad Alexandre of Lebanon unable to take to the octagon.

Elsewhere Ireland's medal haul continued with Paddy Wilkinson taking silver in the Junior Welterweight division with Canada's Jett Grande edging him out while Trevor Makengo was stopped by Russian Shamsutdin Makhmudov in the second round of their Junior Heavyweight final.

Alexander O'Sullivan, Dee Beglin and Patrick Lehane all took bronze in their respective divisions, rounding out a hugely successful tournament for Ireland.
