Gold Coast plumber Harry Garside has danced into the Tokyo quarter-finals of the men’s lightweight division with a unanimous decision win against Namibian Jonas Jonas.

The 24-year-old, who incorporates ballet in his training, won all three rounds in a dominant performance in the 57-63kg class.

Garside opened strongly, landing a big right hand to the head that unsettled Jonas, the No.2 seed, and impressed all five judges.

Two judges gave Jonas the second round as the African champion, who had a first round bye, started to find his range.

But the quick-footed Australian finished strongly with the judges again giving him the round.

Three judges scored it a 30-27 victory, while the other two had the fight 29-28.

He will next face Kazakhstan’s Zakir Safiullin on Tuesday, with a win guaranteeing him an Olympic medal, with both boxers losing semi-finals winning bronze.

Garside is the last Australian boxer remaining in the Games competition.
