European Boxing Championships: Bateson and Joyce confident of gold

British gold medal contenders Jack Bateson and Joe Joyce are both confident of winning gold at the European Boxing Championships after quarter-final wins in Belarus.

Both boxers are assured of at least a bronze medal after Bateson out-pointed Ukraine's light-flyweight Vadym Kudryakov while super-heavyweight Joyce was victorious over Georgian Mikheil Bakhtidze.

Light-welterweight Sam Maxwell did not make it to the last four after he was beaten by Armen Zakaryan of Russia.
