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.
