Hugh Myres and Jason Quigley advanced to the 49kg and 75kg finals at the European U-23 Championships following semi-final wins over Israel and Russia in Russia.

Myres, who boxes out of the Ryston BC in Newbridge, beat Israeli light-flyweight David Albrdian 16-8 at the Sports Palace in Kaliningrad.

And Quigley (Finn Valley BC, Donegal) followed that up with a 15-13 decision over Russian southpaw Maksim Timofeev in the middleweight class.

Both Irish boxers are now guaranteed at least silver.
