Fowler Shocks Mytrofanov in Almaty Quater-Finals

Liverpool middleweight Anthony Fowler upset Ukrainian second seed Dmytro Mytrofanov to march into the quarter-finals of the World Championships in Almaty on Monday.

Fowler produced one of the finest performances of his career to claim a unanimous verdict over the powerful second seed, who had stopped Olympic silver medallist Fred Evans in a World Series of Boxing bout in London in May.

Fowler will now face Germany's Stefan Haertel - who beat him in the last 16 of the European Championships in Minsk in June - in the quarter-finals when a guaranteed medal will be at stake.

Ireland's reigning European champion Jason Quigley also reached the middleweight quarter-finals with a unanimous victory over gutsy Scot Aston Brown.

In his debut at bantamweight, Olympic bronze medallist Michael Conlan set up a last-eight meeting with Russia's Vladimir Nikitin after a unanimous win over Brian Gonzalez of Mexico.

And another excellent day for Ireland was complete when heavyweight Tommy McCarthy also made it into the quarter-finals with a 3-0 win over Emir Ahmatovic of Germany.

I really like the look of Fowler, only 22 too. He impressed me in the WSB and I hope he turns over soon, definitely suits the pro game. Think this was his debut fight in the WSB against American Marquis…
