Ceire Smith, Aoife O’Rourke, Michaela Walsh and Amy Broadhurst kept the wins coming for Ireland at the Women's World Amateur Championships on Saturday.

Yesterday, Kellie Harrington defeated Troy Garton to win her opening bout in New Delhi, India, and her compatriots followed that up with a quartet of good performances today.

Cavan flyweight Smith edged past Bulgarian Gabriela Dimitrova on a 3-2 split decision. She'll now take on Tsukimi Namiki of Japan on Monday morning in the last 16.

Roscommon woman O'Rourke was far too strong for Ya Chu Yang of Taipei in their middleweight bout, dominating throughout against a dogged but limited opponent.

She's also back in last-16 action on Monday against Welsh fighter Lauren Price, the reigning Commonwealth Games champ.

Later, Walsh and Broadhurst both earned 4-1 split decision victories.

Featherweight Walsh overcame Romania’s Lacramiora Perijoc, and Broadhurst edged past Russia’s Ekaterina Dynnik in the light-welter class.
