It was a mixed opening day for Ireland’s young guns at the Feliks Stamm Elite Multi-nations this afternoon and tonight.
Kieran Molloy advanced to the quarter finals, but James McGivern and Thomas Carty would bow at.
Molloy was involved in a quality three rounds with Norway’s Jamshid Nasarim and the Galway welter came out on top with a 4-1 split.
Irish U22 champion and former Youth star McGivern was beaten on a unanimous decision by France’s Rio 2016 silver medallist Sofiane Oumiha.
The St George’s youngster gave a good account of himself and did not look out of place against his world class opponent who last week defeated Irish #1 and #2 Pat Mongan and George Bates.
Carty would also lose on a unanimous to France’s Djamili Dini Aboudou at super heavy.
Molloy will be back in action tomorrow against Poland where he will be looking to join Myles Casey in the semi-finals.
Limerick’s Casey received a bye into the last-four.
