Roy Sheehan made it two wins out of two for Ireland at the AIBA World Championships and Olympic qualifiers in Baku, Azerbaijan today.
The St Michael's Athy welterweight came from being 4-3 down at the end of the first to register a 15-10 decision over Carl Hield of the Bahamas.
Sheehan produced a particularly good second round to overturn the one point deficit and surge 11-8 ahead against the Bahamian southpaw before winning the third and final frame 4-3.
The three-time Irish Elite champion will now meet Borna Katalinic of Croatia on Sunday.
Sheehan is the only Irish boxer in action today. European light-welterweight champion, Ray Moylette, will be between the ropes tomorrow.
