Great Britain's Anthony Fowler and Andrew Selby are guaranteed at least a bronze medal at the World Amateur Championships in Kazakhstan after winning their respective quarter-finals.

Middleweight Fowler saw off seventh ranked Stefan Hartel 2-1 in their bout, while top seed flyweight Selby defeated home favourite Ilyas Suleimenov, also 2-1.

"It means the world to me and I've trained so hard," Fowler told BBC Sport. "I never stop until the final bell. My diet has been spot on, I'm training hard and I'm getting the rewards."

Selby will now face Jasurbek Latipov in Friday's semi-final.
