Kellie Harrington and Amy Broadhurst box at the AIBA World Elite Championships in New Delhi, India tomorrow on a key day for Irish boxing.

The Dublin and Dundalk duo meet Canada and India in the light and light-welter quarter-finals with at least bronze up for grabs.

33 nations have athletes through to the last eight and within striking distance of the medals.

Harrington will be between the ropes at approximately 8.50am in the morning and Broadhurst at 12.30pm early tomorrow afternoon (Irish times).

New Delhi is five and a half hours ahead of Ireland.

Broadhurst, who is making her World Elite debut in India, has won two bouts so far, including today’s victory, at the 10th edition of the tournament.

Harrington, who has also won two contests at the 73-nation tournament, claimed silver at the light-welter at the 2016 World Championships in Kazakhstan.
