Ireland experienced mixed fortunes at the Feliks Stamm Elite Multi-nations this afternoon and tonight, with Kieran Molloy, pictured, advancing to the last-eight but James McGivern and Thomas Carthy bowing out.

Molloy was involved in a top class three-rounder with Norwegian welter Jamshid Nasarim, reports Irish team manager Francis Keeling, and came out on top 4-1, but McGivern was beaten on a unanimous decision by France’sRio  2016 silver medallist Sofiane Oumiha, who boxed at last weekend’s Round Robin at the National Stadium, in the 60kg class.

However, it was a composed performance from the Belfast southpaw who was by no means overawed against an opponent who is ranked No. 4 in the world.

Carthy, the last Irish boxer in action today, dropped a unanimous to France’s Djamili Dini Aboudou, who also boxed at the Stadium last weekend, in the super-heavy class.

Molloy will be back in action tomorrow evening versus Poland looking to join Myles Casey in the semi-finals.

Casey received a bye into the last-four.
