Birmingham's Frankie Gavin moved one step closer to emulating his friend Amir Khan and securing a major championships medal on another superb day for British boxers in Melbourne.
The 20-year-old eased past Indian Jai Bhagwan 20-8 with a controlled performance which put him in the quarter-finals of the lightweight division.
Gavin replaced Khan in the England team last year and described the frequent comparisons which are made with the Bolton teenager as "flattering".
He said: "It's great for my name just to be mentioned in the same league as Amir. My long-term goal is also to win an Olympic medal and everything is going to plan."
Despite briefly switching off in the second round Gavin's last-eight berth was rarely in doubt as he showecased the recent improvements he has made to his sharp, fleet-footed style.
Gavin added: "I am learning a lot all the time and getting things right. Last year my hands were too low all the time and I was getting caught but now I am keeping things tighter."
Fellow Birmingham boxer Don Broadhurst silenced the home fans with a 26-18 points win over Australian flyweight rival Bradley Hore to move into the quarter-finals.
Broadhurst eased into action against his taller, more experienced opponent and gradually increased his lead throughout as he kicked off his campaign in solid fashion.
Broadhurst, who next meets Northern Ireland's Ryan Lindberg with a bronze medal at stake, said: "There was a bit of pressure boxing a home lad but I knew my ability would see me through.
"Having the crowd cheering for him and booing me made me want to win more. I don't want to appear disrespectful but I wanted to make him look silly and this win is one up for England."
Lindberg evoked memories of a young Barry McGuigan after a skilful performance to outclass Ghanaian Emmanuel Addo with 31 seconds left in round two.
The 17-year-old Lindberg is the same age as Barry McGuigan was when Northern Ireland's biggest boxing star claimed Commonwealth Games gold in Edmonton in 1978.
And after his punch-perfect performance Lindberg, who is taking a break from A-level business stud-ies, vowed not to leave Melbourne without a medal in his first year of senior competition. Lindberg said: "I will not go down easy for bronze - I am not getting beat."
