The story is trending all over the net. Irish boxer Aidan Walsh has withdrawn from his semifinal bout in Tokyo after he injured his ankle celebrating his victory against Mauritius’ Merven Clair in the quarterfinals.

After he was given the win, though, Walsh started a wild celebration.

He jumped up and down multiple times and then landed awkwardly on his ankle.

Walsh didn’t attend the medical check and weigh-in for his fight against Great Britain’s Pat McCormack on Sunday, according to The Associated Press. His absence means that McCormack will advance to the gold medal welterweight fight.

Walsh will still win a bronze medal. McCormack will now take on either Cuba’s Roniel Iglesias or Russia’s Andrei Zamkovoy in the gold medal fight.
