Ireland's Michael O'Reilly is just one more victory away from qualifying for the Rio Olympics.

The middleweight defeated his Mongolian opponent,Shinebayor Narmandakh, by unanimous decision in their last-16 bout today at the Olympic qualifying tournament in Baku and must now face the home favourite from Azerbaijan for a place in Rio on Thursday.

There was also victory for Dean Gardiner this evening in the quarter-finals of the super heavyweight division.

The Tipperary native scored a massive win over his Ukrainian opponent - and he's now just two wins away from Rio.

Gardiner needs a gold medal this week, but has two wins so far in Baku.
