IRISH AMATEUR BOXING ASSOCIATION
"5th European Schoolboy Championships"
Carlow bantamweight Dylan Carr is guaranteed at least a bronze medal at the European Schoolboy Championships following his quarter final victory in Novi Sad, Serbia tonight.
But there was disappointment for talented young Derry light flyweight Aaron Rogan after he lost his last eight clash to Tarsa Krystofovich from the Ukraine by a margin of five points (5-10) this evening.
Carr, who is now the only Irish boxer left in the tournament, took the first and seconds rounds versus Israel's Shadi Abuasad en route to earning a 16-13 win.
The Carlow teenager will now meet Ruslan Gilmanov from Russia in the semi finals on Friday - and Irish team manager Joe Hennigan reckons he has a good chance of making it to the final.
He said: "Dylan boxed very well tonight and he won the first two rounds but his opponent came back very strong in the third and final round but Dylan was a deserved winner.
"Young Aaron Rogan also boxed very well.But unfortunately it wasn't to be but he can be very proud of his efforts.
"We watched Dylan's Russian semi final opponent this evening and I believe that Dylan has every chance of making the finals on Friday. His confidence is high after tonight's win and he is looking forward to the bout."
Thursday is a rest day at the tournament which is featuring the cream of Europe's underage talent.
