Erislandy Savon and Vassiliy Levit move on to the 91kilo semis.
The other quarter final saw the Cuban favourite Erislandy Savon wasting no time, letting the bombs go against two time Argentinian Olympian Yamil Peralta Jara.. Weathering the storm Jara found sporadic success with right hand counters, but the constant pressure from the crafty Cuban earned him the first two rounds decisively.. The final stanza saw Jara hurt frequently by huge right hands from Savon, attempting to trade, the Argentinian found himself out of his depth.. Savon breezing through to the medal stages, unanimously..
Savon will meet Levit in the first guaranteed medal round on Saturday..
