Half of the men's finals tonight. All times BST and estimates.

Light Flyweight
20:30 - Shiming Zou (China) vs Kaeo Pongprayooon (Thailand)

20:45 - John Joe Nevin (Ireland) vs Luke Campbell (GB)

Light Welterweight
21:15 - Roniel Iglesias Sotolongo (Cuba) vs Denys Berinchyk (Ukraine)

21:45 - Esquiva Falcao Florentino (Brazil) vs Ryota Murata (Japan)

22:15 - Oleksandr Uysk (Ukraine) vs Clemente Russo (Italy)


Any predictions?

I'm gonna go for Zou, Nevin, Iglesias Sotolongo, Falcao and Uysk to win gold.

Pong, Campbell, Berinchyk, Falcao and Usyk.

Berinchyk might look like a crazy pick but I've seen Iglesias get overwhelmed before and Berinchyk is a beast. Iglesias could easily pick him off though but I reckon the styles will make for an interesting scrap. War crazy hair.

I think Zou has slipped abit and the Thai has been quality all tournament, I think he'll outwork him.

Campbell/Nevin is a toss up. campbell needs to keep it at range and let Nevin do the chasing whilst picking him off. Real 50/50 that one though.

if Murata can make it a slug out that fight will be awesome.

I don't think Usyk will have many problems with the Italian.
