Broadhurst was too strong for Zambia’s Felistus Nkandu, forcing a stoppage in the third round. The 63kg World Amateur champion, competing here at lightweight, took the first round across the board and two of the judges scored the second round 10-8 in her favour.

Dundalk native Broadhurst, who won gold at the World Championships in Istanbul in May, will now face a semi-final on Saturday afternoon at 3.45pm.
