Middleweight and flyweight results day 8:Yasser stuns Simion

Middleweight and flyweight results day 8:Yasser stuns Simion

Ramadan Yasser pulled off the upset of the Games so far when he out-pointed Gold medal favourite Marian Simion

Yasser started off at a terrific pace to lead 18-9 going into the third session but Simion managed to close the gap to 24-18, going into the last to set up an exciting finale. Simion pressed forward and even administered a standing eight count but Yasser managed to hang on and even scored with single shots and finish further in front by an unexpectedly high margin of 36-24.

Gennadiy Golovkin was too strong and busy for the inexperienced 23 year-old Ali Khan from Pakistan. Golovkin very nearly won the bout in the third session, needing just one point to force a stoppage on the 20 point outclassed rule. But Khan managed to stay the course, though, defeated by 31-10.

American Andre Dirrell advanced to the last eight in the middleweight division by outclassing Algerian Nabil Kassel by the 20 point outclass rule in an all southpaw clash. Dirrell
