Roy Sheehan made it two wins out of two for Ireland at the AIBA World Championships and Olympic qualifiers in Baku, Azerbaijan today.
The St Michael's Athy welterweight came from being 4-3 down at the end of the first to register a 15-10 decision over Carl Hield of the Bahamas.
Sheehan produced a particularly good second round to overturn the one point deficit and surge 11-8 ahead against the Bahamian southpaw before winning the third and final frame 4-3.
The three-time Irish Elite champion will now meet Borna Katalinic of Croatia on Sunday.
Sheehan is the only Irish boxer in action today. European light-welterweight champion, Ray Moylette, will be between the ropes tomorrow.

The United States’ Errol Spence Records a Convincing Opening Round Win in Azerbaijan
(COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.) – Welterweight Errol Spence (Desoto, Texas) pushed the United States’ winning streak to five with a convincing 28-10 win over Iran’s Amin Ghasemi in first round competition on Thursday at the 2011 AIBA Men’s World Championships.
Spence, one of only two U.S. boxers with previous World Championships experience, was the lone American athlete to compete in Thursday’s action at the Sport & Exhibition Centre in Baku, Azerbaijan.
After taking a 5-2 lead in the opening round, Spence doubled his lead in the second to move out to a 13-7 advantage with one round remaining. Yet, he refused to sit on his lead over the final three minutes. Spence put his foot on the gas in the third, giving Ghasemi a standing eight count and scoring 15 points over the final three minutes. He won a 28-10 final decision over Ghasemi to advance to the second round.
Spence will face Canada’s Custio Clayton in second round competition in Sunday’s evening session.
Light welterweight Jamel Herring (Coram, N.Y./Camp Lejeune, N.C.) will be the sixth U.S. boxer to compete in Baku when he takes the ring for his opening round contest with China’s Qing Hu on Friday.
The United States’ 5-0 start in Baku equals their mark at the 2007 World Championships in Chicago where Team USA crowned two World Champions, Rau’shee Warren (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Demetrius Andrade (Providence, R.I.).
USA Boxing National Coach Joe Zanders (Long Beach, Calif.), coaches Ronald Simms (Stafford, Va.) and Manny Robles (Los Angeles, Calif.), technical advisor Ken Porter (Akron, Ohio), and Team Manager Ken Buffington (Marshalltown, Iowa) are leading the United States team in Baku.
The 2011 World Championships are the first international qualifying tournament for the 2012 Olympic Games, and the light flyweight through light heavyweight boxers must place in top ten to qualify for London while the heavyweight and super heavyweight competitors need to place in the top six.
