Please see below attachment for today’s schedule at the European Championships in Kharkiv, Ukraine.
Irish captain Darren O’Neill, current European champion Joe Ward, Emmet Brennan and Kurt Walker are in last 16 action.
If any, or all, of the Irish quartet win they’ll join Brendan Irvine and Seam McComb in the quarter-finals, and also qualify, along with Irvine and McComb, for the World Championships which begin in Hamburg, Germany in August
The top eight boxers in each weight – the quarter-finalists – qualify for Hamburg.
Qualifying for the World Championships, the inaugural tournament of which was held in Havana in 1974, is a relatively new concept introduced in 2015 for the Doha World Championships.
Prior to Doha, National Federations entered teams for the World Championships.
