Bantamweight Luke Campbell clinched the dominant British team's first boxing medal of the London Olympics on Sunday night in a session marred by a series of unsightly heavyweight fights that probably will be decided outside the ring.
Heavyweights Teymur Mammadov of Azerbaijan and Clemente Russo of Italy both clutched, grabbed and held their way through their quarterfinal bouts at ExCel arena, yet both highly ranked amateurs won narrow scoring decisions that surprised fans and enraged their opponents.
The fighters from Belarus and Cuba said they'll protest the decisions in an Olympics already featuring two overturned results.
Amateur boxing's governing body confirmed Belarus has protested Siarhei Karneyeu's loss to Mammadov. Jose Larduet's Cuban coach says they'll protest his loss to Russo.
