GO on yourself Paddy, guranteed bronze at least. Big egan up soon aswell
Paddy Barnes has secured at least a bronze medal after beating Lukasz Maszczyk 11-5 in the light-flyweight quarter-final.
The 21-year-old from Belfast came out on top in a scrappy contest, frustrating the Polish fighter and cleverly picking his shots.
The first round was very even, but Barnes produced a flurry of fine punches in the second to take a lead that he never looked like surrendering.
His lead was four points after the third round, not giving the Pole any opportunities and occasionally attacking when he saw the chance.
As Barnes sat in his corner for the final round you could see the level on excitement on his face and the reality of the situation seemed to hit home.
He was told by the Irish team to ' keep doing what you are doing, calm down, only two minutes and you're there'.
Maszczyk knew it was his last chance to make an impression on the fight and attacked from the start of the round.
But Barnes showed great composure, even registering the first point.
He kept his opponent pointless for the second round in a row and secured a fight with Shiming Zou from China on Friday for a place in the gold medal match.
