England’s Frazer Clarke has guaranteed himself at least a bronze medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Super-heavyweight Clarke won a unanimous decision against Australia’s Toese Vou Siutu in the final eight on Tuesday, to move into the semi-finals which ensures a medal.

The 26-year-old will next face New Zealand’s Patrick Mailata – both amateurs were recently used by Anthony Joshua as sparring partners for his world heavyweight title unification fight against Joseph Parker.

Clarke was among nine home nations boxers to reach the semi-finals and guarantee at least bronze at the Commonwealth Games.

Twins Pat and Luke McCormack, Cheavon Clarke, Galal Yafai and Peter McGrail all also won their bouts and progressed, representing England, while Aidan Walsh, Kurt Walker and Michaela Walsh went through for Northern Ireland.
