Ireland boxer Declan Gerraghty and neighbor, Darren O'Neill, also suffer defeats in Milan. Cardle exposed afterwards that rival at the Worlds was the previous thing on his mind a month ago.

He said that I feel like I was dying, after thrashing the Beijing bronze medallist. I was protected away with a Tamiflu instruction and I lost four kilos. But the practice made it much easy for me to make the weight for Milan when I got back in preparation.If anybody had told me when I was in bed that I'd go to the Worlds let by yourself fight for a medal I'd have had a good laugh. But I've gone out there with not anything to lose and it's actually paid off. Meanwhile, Yafai is sure about his probability in his division. I felt great in there today but I've got so much more to give," said the Birmingham boxer.
