Westmeath’s Joe Ward is guaranteed at least  bronze medal at the Chemistry World Cup in Cologne, Germany. He won his quarter final yesterday in the light heavyweight division and he will fight in the semi-finals later today.

Three other Irish fighters Anthony Browne, Micheala Walsh and Carly McNeill are also through to the semi-finals

European Elite champion Ward, now two wins away from claiming a third Chemistry Cup gold, was the last Irish boxer in action last night and comfortably beat China’s Jilei Zhang on a unanimous decision.


Offaly’s Grainne Walsh lost out to her German opponent in the welterweight quarter-final.
