Carlo Paalam assured the country its fourth Olympic medal after pulling off a quarterfinals win against Shakhobidin Zoirov of Uzbakistan in the men’s flyweight quarterfinals on Tuesday.

The 23-year old Filipino puncher advanced to the semifinal round after a second round stoppage over the Rio Games 2016 gold medalist.

The win marked the country’s most productive Olympic showing since its particpation in the Games in 1924.

Paalam is set to face Ryomei Tanaka of Japan in the semifinals on 5 August.
