PHILIPPINES' Eumir Marcial is assured of at least a bronze medal after knocking out Armenia's Arman Darchinyan in the first round of the men's middleweight (69-75 kilogram) boxing semifinals in the Tokyo Olympics Sunday, August 1, 2021.

Marcial's win has secured the country its third medal in the Olympics.
