Surprise package Gabriel Dossen and triple European gold medalist Michael Nevin are both in action in the morning session in St Petersburg.
First up is Galway light welter Dossen who is up against Russian Sergei Margarian at Noon (Irish time). The corresponding semi final pits Turk Tugrulhan Erdermir against Belarussian Pavel Mikhailiuk.
Portlaoise middleweight Michael Nevin is in soon after, facing Scotland’s William Hutchinson at 12:45pm. Nevin should be familiar with his tartan opponent having had a test match with him in Belfast last month before the team headed off to Russia. The other semi final sees Kazakh Bek Nurmaganbet face German Vezir Agirman.
