Sean McComb won a bronze medal in Baku after losing his lightweight semi-final to Azerbaijan’s Albert Selimov.
The impressive and vastly experienced number one seed Selimov won on a unanimous decision over the Belfast 22-year-old.
McComb hopes took a blow in the second round with a bad cut on his right temple from a clash of heads.
He regained his composure to edge the final round but by then Selimov had already done enough in the first two rounds to seal a final spot.
The judges gave Selimov the fight on a scoreline of 29-28, 30-27 and 29-28.
McComb has looked impressive throughout the event and can be proud of winning a bronze medal for Team Ireland.
Meanwhile, Michael O’Reilly is assured of at least a silver medal after receiving a walkover into the middleweight final.
The Portlaoise fighter had been due step into the ring at 10am to meet Russian Maxim Koptyakov, however, a cut eye sustained in his quarter-final bout ruled Koptyakov out of the semi-final.
