Lewis Williams, Conner Tudsbury, Sam Hickey and Reese Lynch are fighting for medals from an initial 21-strong squad.

Williams and Tudsbury will be assured of a medal if they come through their quarter-final bouts on Tuesday.

On day seven in Belgrade, the Tokyo Olympics quarter-finalist beat Mexico’s Reogelio Romero by unanimous points decision at cruiserweight.

Williams, 24, from Leamington Spa, recovered from a points deduction to earn his place in the heavyweight quarter-final with a victory over Ukraine’s Rober Marton.

Two Scottish fighters are in action on Monday, hoping to secure their places in Tuesday’s quarter-finals.

Dundee’s Hickey goes up against Croatia’s Gabrojel Veocic in the 75kg middleweight division after outpointing Bulgaria’s Rami Kiwan on split decision.

In the evening session, North Lanarkshire’s Lynch takes on Spain’s Adrian Thiam Creus, in the 63.5kg light-welterweight division, having clinched a 4-1 split decision against Iranian Ashkan Reazaei last week.
