Great Britain's Luke Campbell, Andrew Selby and Anthony Joshua win silver medals at the World Amateur Boxing Championships in Baku.

Andrew Selby, Luke Campbell and Anthony Joshua have won silver medals after being defeated in their individual final bouts at the World Amateur Boxing Championships in Azerbaijan earlier today.

Welshman Selby lost 13-12 to Russia's Misha Aloian in the flyweight final, while former gold medallist Campbell comfortably lost his bantamweight contest with Cuban Lazaro Alvarez.

Another Brit, Anthony Joshua, narrowly lost out on the gold medal during his super-heavyweight fight with Magomedrasul Medzhidov.

Joshua appeared to have sealed the top prize when he led 9-6 in Baku, but he eventually lost to the host's Medzhidov 22-21.

Campbell's performance in Azerbaijan has seen him secure his sport in the Great British team for next year's Olympic Games in London.
