Junior Cameron Donnelly won his boxing match in Cuba last week, but the American team fell short to the Cubans in the international tournament.

“It was definitely a challenging experience, but I came out stronger,” Donnelly said.

As part of television network CNN’s coverage of the boxing tournament, a photo of Donnelly appeared on CNN’s Instagram feed.

“It was unbelievable to see myself on there and I was pretty excited,” he said.

Donnelly has been boxing since he was in fifth grade. His football coach at the time was a professional fighter and convinced Donnelly to try boxing.

Donnelly had previously travelled to Ireland to box and plans to go back. He also plans to travel to Italy and Croatia this upcoming year.
