Harry Garside will be the first Australian boxer in 33 years to exit the Olympics with a medal after reaching the semi-finals.

The 24-year-old won a place in the last four and on Tuesday night beat Zakir Safiullin of Kazakhstan.

That means he will leave Tokyo with the first Olympic medal that Australia has won in boxing since Spike Cheney in 1988.
