Ireland's Olympic champion Katie Taylor is determined to win a gold medal at the inaugural European Games in Baku.
Taylor, 28, guaranteed herself another championship medal with a unanimous quarter-final victory over Swede Ida Lundblad and will face Azerbaijan's home-town favourite Yana Alekseevna in the semi-finals on Friday.
In addition to her 2012 Olympic triumph, lightweight Taylor has won five straight world titles and six successive European gold medals and said: "I am here for the gold so I'm not going to settle for anything else".
