The men's welterweight final is set for Sunday. Here are the semifinal results from this afternoon in London.

Freddie Evans (Great Britain) def. Taras Shelestyuk (Ukraine), 11-10: Evans led 8-5 into the final round and did fade a bit, but he did enough to win it, and he goes for gold in two days. It was overall his best performance, against his best opponent. Shelestuyk came damn close to doing enough to overturn it in the third, but the upset happened -- Freddie Evans makes it two Brits with gold medal chances this weekend. For now. (Anthony Joshua still to come this afternoon.)

Serik Sapiyev (Kazakhstan) def. Andrey Zamkovoy (Russia), 18-12: Sapiyev had terrific rounds in the first (6-2) and third (8-4), but Zamkovoy adjusted in the middle round to stay in it. It was well-fought, but Sapiyev was the better man. He's going to be damn tough for Evans on Sunday, but never say never. We've seen crazier so far.
