Dean Clancy won his second bout in 24 hours to book his ticket into the last eight of the European U/22 Championships in Roseto, Italy, tonight.

But Gabriel Dossen went out of the tournament on a unanimous decision.

Clancy beat Serbian No.3 seed Nenad Javanovic on a unanimous verdict, with one judge scoring the fight 30-25 to the Irishman.

Dossen was involved in a tight tussle with Moreno Fendero, but it was the French middleweight that got the nod after the final bell.

Earlier today, Ireland experienced mixed fortunes on 4-1 split decisions.

Sean Mari advanced, but Niamh Earley bowed out.

Mari, an Irish army man and son of team manager, Tara Mari, beat England’s Hamza Mahmood.

But Earley lost on an identical scoreline to Romane Moulan of France.
