Kieran Molloy, Sean Conroy and Willie Donoghue will all take home at least bronze medals from the AIBA World Junior Championships in Kiev, Ukraine.

The Irish trio won their quarter-finals bouts to book their tickets into Saturday’s semi-finals at the 57-nation tournament.

But Irish skipper John Joyce bowed out on a split decision to Korea’s Byeonghee Jang.

Molloy, Conroy and Donoghue earned unanimous decisions over Australia’s Joshua McKay, Uzbekistan’s Bakhronjon Fozilov and Georgii Ivanov of the Ukraine.
