Broadhurst through to quarter-finals at Women’s World Boxing Championships

Dundalk boxer Amy Broadhurst has made it into the quarter-finals of the Women’s World Boxing Championships in Russia.

The lightweight won via unanimous decision against Poland’s Aneta Rygielska in Siberia this morning morning.

The 22-year-old is now just one win away from a medal in Russia.

She will meet Finland’s number one seed Mira Potkonen in the last eight on Thursday with at least bronze up for grabs.

The bout is a repeat of August’s European Elite semi-final which the Finn won in Madrid.
