Russia and Cuba dominate finals




Heavyweight (91kgs) Odlanier Solis Fonte and Yuriorkis Gamboa Toledano flyweight (51kga) struck Gold for Cuba at the Peristeri Olympic Boxing Hall by clearly out-pointing Viktar Zuyev and Jerome Thomas, respectively.

Fonte led by a solitary point going into the second session following a slow start but opened a four point lead in the second and eventually ran out a clear 22-13 win.

Toldano had a slightly easier time against Frenchman Jerome Thomas. The classy Cuban lead by just one point at the end of the first session but a strong onslaught of combination punching extended his lead in the second session to 21-14. From there Toldano moved up the gears to eventually win by 30-19.

One Gold,however, that eluded the all powerful Cuban team was at light-welterweight (64kgs) when Yudel Johnson Cedano was edged out Thailand's Manus Boonjumnong by a close but deserved 17-11.

In the featherweight final 20 year-old Russian Alexi Tichtchenco was simply just too good for Korean boxer Song Guk Kim. Tichtchenco dominated from the first bell until the last, eventually running out a very clear 39-17.

In the middleweight (75kgs) final Russian Gaydatbek Gaydarbekov recovered from a four point deficit to out-point world champion Gennadiy by 28-18. Gaydarbekov trailed 2-6 in first session and by two in the second until he upped his workrate and accuracy to pile on the points and win by a 10 point margin.

The remaining finals take place today. August 29, 2004.
