During the morning session of Day 4 of Olympic boxing action, Team USA Boxing captain and US Marines sergeant Jamel Herring, a Light Welterweight, was in action against Kazakhstan's Daniyar Yeleussinov. Herring was simply outworked and outboxed a bit, and after a strong start in the first few minutes of the fight, lost a clear decision.
Besides Herring, some of the other performances of note included two dominating wins for the Cuban Olympic team. Cuba's Yosbany Veitia Soto absolutely trounced Billy Ward of Australia 26-4, while Roniel Iglesias won his match by a wide 20-9 margin. In a year where the Cuban team was much younger and less experienced than in some past Olympics, the team has come out rolling so far.
In addition, India's Devendro Laishram put on an extremely dominant performance against his opponent which led to the stoppage of the bout after round 1, as he had already compiled a 22 point margin.
