Ireland's incredible journey at the AIBA World Youth Championships continued last night and in the early hours of this morning after Ray Moylett and Jamie Kavanagh marched into tonight’s finals following semi final wins in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Light heavyweight Thomas McCarthy also had to accept bronze after being edged out by Russian National Youth champion, Marten Magomedov.
