Derry's Connor Coyle guaranteed himself at least a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games after beating his South African opponent in the middleweight quarter final last night.

The St. Joseph's ABC boxer won on a unanimous decision against Siphiwe Lusizi - and the victory ensures the Northern Ireland team add to their growing medal haul.

They're now guaranteed at least nine medals in the boxing ring.
Paddy Barnes, Michaela Walsh, Michael Conlon and Steven Donnelly also won their quarter final bouts last night.

Both Connor Coyle and fellow Derry boxer Sean McGlinchey will box in their semi finals on Friday
