Aidan Walsh beat Yevhenii Barabanov on a split decision in the men’s welterweight category (69kg).
Barabanov was fourth seed in the competition so the win was significant for the Belfast man.
Kellie Harrington and Aoife O'Rourke secured their places at this summer's Tokyo Games yesterday.
Emmet Brennan will have a box-off for a chance to go to Tokyo. Brendan Irvine has already sealed his place.
