Ireland's Katie Taylor moved one step closer to a fifth consecutive European Union lightweight title on Friday in Hungary.

Taylor claimed a unanimous points victory over Finland's Mira Potkonen which, as it currently stands, sets up a final meeting with Frenchwoman Estelle Mosseley.

Mosseley edged out Britain's Natasha Jonas in the second semi-final but the British team have confirmed they will appeal the decision.

There was also success for the Great Britain trio of Nicola Adams, Lisa Whiteside and Savannah Marshall who all booked final places at the EU Championships.

Olympic gold medallist Adams cruised past Poland's Sandra Drabnik by a unanimous decision to book a final against Bulgarian Stoyka Petrova, who she beat in the quarter-finals at London 2012.

World middleweight champion Marshall overhauled Love Holgersson of Sweden to set up a final showdown with Nouchka Mirielle Fountin of the Netherlands on Saturday.

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Whiteside registered a unanimous win over France's Delphine Mancina to reach the final, where she will face Alice Sramkova of the Czech Republic.
