Great British boxers Thomas Stalker and Luke Campbell secure their places at the Olympic Games in London next year.

Boxing duo Thomas Stalker and Luke Campbell have secured their places in the Great Britain team for the Olympic Games next year.

Liverpool-born light-welterweight Stalker ensured his participation in London after beating Russia's Alexander Solyanikov 17-9 to book his spot in the World Championship quarter-finals in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Stalker is a Commonwealth gold medallist and also claimed silver at the most recent European Championships.

Compatriot Campbell saw off Algerian Mohamed Ouadahi 11-9 to reach the last eight.

There was not such good news for Anthony Ogogo, who failed to join his two teammates as he went down 17-12 to Brazilian Esquiva Falcao.
