Today fans in Incheon saw the final set of preliminary bouts, which took place in the 75KG division, and saw the first set of quart final bouts.
Firstly the preliminary results which were to decide the quarter finalists at 75KG. These saw a notable shock as Filipino Wilfredo Lopez managed to score one of the days more surprising wins.

75kg Wilfredo Lopez PHI (3:0) Wahid Abderredha IRQ
As for the quarter finals these came in 4 divisions, the 52KG, 60KG, 69KG and 81KG weight classes and guaranteed the winners at least a bronze medal.
52kg Shahobiddin Zoirov UZB (3:0) Gaurav Bidhuri IND
52kg Muhammad Waseem PAK (TKO-Injury 1) Azat Usenaliyev KIR
52kg Shota Hayashida JPN (2:0) Zarip Dzhumayev TRK
52kg Ilyas Suleymanov KZK (2:1) Choe Sang-Don KOR
From what we understand that will leave the 52KG division with semi finals between Zoirov and Waseem in one bout and Hayashida and Suleymanov in the other. It also guarantees Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Japan and Kazakhstan a medal
60kg Dorjnyambuu Otgondalai MGL (3:0) Akzhol Sulaymabek uulu KIR
60kg Satoshi Shimizu JPN (2:1) Wang Lei CHN
60kg Obada al-Kasbeh JRD Han Soon-Chul KOR
60kg Charlie Suarez PHI Ammar Hassan IRQ
From what we understand here it will be Otgondalai against Shimizu and al-Kasbeh against Suarez in the semi finals. On paper this could lead to a very interesting final between Olympic medal winner Shimizu and the highly regarded Filipino Suarez. As for medals this assures Mongolia, Jordan and the Philippines of at least one boxing medal and Japan of two, adding Shimizu to Hayashida.
69kg Serdar Hudayberdiev TRK (3:0) Amin Ghasemipour IRN
69kg Daniyar Eleusinov KZK (3:0) Tuvshinbat Byamba MGL
69kg Apichet Sansit THA (3:0) Mandeep Jangra IND
69kg Israil Madrimov UZB (TKO3) Yasuhiro Suzuki JPN
Here we are suspecting that Hudayberdiev will be fighting Eleusinov in one semi final whilst Sansit will fight Madrimov in the other. This division assures Turkmenistan of their first boxing medal, Kazakhstan have their second, as do Uzbekistan, whilst Thailand have their first. Suzuki was the only one of the Japanese fighters eliminated today whilst his 2 compatriots qualified.
81kg Kim Hyeong-Kyu KOR (3:0) Arslanbek Achilov TRK 3:0
81kg Oybek Mamazulunov UZB (TKO2) Nadjed Salloum LEB TKO 2
81kg Ehsan Rozbahani IRN (3:0) Kuldeep Singh IND 3:0
81kg Adilbek Niyazimbetov KZK (3:0) Zhang Aolin CHN 3:0
At 81KG's we'll see semi finals between Kim and Mamazulunov and Rozbahani and Niyazimbetov. These results mean that South Korea and Iran will each get a medal in the boxing whilst Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan will each get 3.
