EUROPEAN bronze medallist Leah Gallen made a winning return to the ring last night.
The Raphoe ABC welter overcame Olivia Craig from Ballykelly ABC in impressive fashion.
Fighting in the Ballykelly ABC-hosted show at the Drummond Hotel, Gallen scored a fine unanimous decision win.
Craig, formerly of Eglinton and now in the Ballykelly trunks, couldn’t halt the hungry Gallen.
A two-time European bronze medallist, Gallen was fighting for the first time since winning a European Youth bronze in Bulgaria in September.
There, she defeated Annemarie Schierle and Gulcan Arga before losing out to Csulla Ambrus in a semi-final.
In 2018, Gallen won bronze at the European Junior Championships in Russia.
