The super heavyweight semifinalists are set, and all of this afternoon's winners in London are guaranteed at least bronze in the 2012 Olympics. Here are the results from this afternoon.

[ Results: Middleweight Quarterfinals ]
[
Results: Lightweight Quarterfinals ]
[
Women's Results: Quarterfinals ]

Magomedrasul Medzhidov (Azerbaijan) def. Magomed Omarov (Russia), 17-14: Omarov had a one-point lead after two, but lost this one in the third to the defending world champion and world-ranked No. 1 by the AIBA standard. Pretty hard-hitting fight. Both were spent at the end of this one.

Roberto Cammarelle (Italy) def. Mohammed Arjaoui (Morocco), 12-11: Cammarelle has definitely aged in last four years. Without a second round warning, Arjaoui would have pulled huge upset. Wrongly, but he would have. Cammarelle has a big task defending his Beijing gold, but he could do it. He needs to heat up though.

Ivan Dychko (Kazakhstan) def. Simon Kean (Canada), 20-6: Complete wipeout. Kean had no hope in this one. He tried but he was thoroughly outclassed.

Anthony Joshua (Great Britain) def. Zhang Zhilei (China), 15-11: It seems obvious to many of us at this point, I think, that Joshua vs Erislandy Savon of Cuba in the round of 16 may well have been the actual gold medal fight of this division. Joshua probably should have won by even more than he did here, and floored Zhang hard in the second round. He's got a lot of ability, and right now, looks the class of what's left. Zhang won silver in Beijing, but won't medal in London.
