Washington DC amateur flyweight Malik Jackson has brought home a bronze medal from a tournament in the Ukraine this week.
The 18-year-old Jackson lost in the semifinals of the Makar Makai Memorial tournament in Mariupol, Ukraine. The event was Jackson's initial foray into international competition.
Jackson won the USA Nationals in the Elite Division earlier this year, meaning he fought without headgear. Jackson also won a DC Golden Gloves title but skipped the nationals to attend his high school prom and graduation.
