Olympic boxing: Carrazana wins flyweight gold for CubaAugust 12th, 2012 - 9:45 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 12 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Cuba’s Robeisy Ramirez Carrazana won gold in the Olympic men’s flyweight (52kg) boxing category here at the ExCel Arena Sunday, beating Mongolian fighter Tugtsogt Nyambayar 17-14 in the final.
Ramirez Carrazana, 18, went into the final round 9-10 down but stamped his authority on the fight with some accurate jabs as Nyambayar began to tire and resorted to persistent holding in a round he lost 5-7.
Bronze medals went to Ireland’s Michael Conlan and Russia’s Misha Aloian after they lost their respective flyweight semi-finals Friday.
Aloain battled Nyambayar all the way in their fight, which ended 15-11 in the Mongolian’s favour after he won all three rounds by narrow margins, 6-4, 5-4, 4-3.
The margin of victory was more clear cut for Ramirez Carrazana, who beat Conlan 20-10, outboxing him 6-3 and 4-3 in the first two rounds before knocking the Belfast man down in the final round, which the Cuban won 10-4.
