A lot of these olympic markets seem to be behind events, must be someone cashing in somewhere, though not large sums involved.

Not sure about Savon being favourite for gold, tbh.

watching middleweights at the moment, but there is not much point in trying to bet on here. Some of the fighters I've been watching are not even listed in the 75kg category on Betfair, and Anthony Fowler is still listed on the market, even though he was eliminated yesterday. Watching a Zambian, Muziyo, who is not listed, neither is the Indian who won the last bout (although the American he beat is still listed on the market). Feck knows what is going on. Confused

Great win for Britain's Light-heavyweight Joshua Buatsi, knocking out highly-rated Rasulov of Uzbekistan in the 3rd Rd.

just watched that fight, buatsi looks a promising sort. the other guy was number 3 seed as well.

  seen him in a couple of interviews as well and he seems a really likeable bloke. one more fight for a guaranteed medal...

Levit should win the 91kg bout, but some strange judging in 2nd round gave it to Tischenko. Good last rd for levit, if he doesn't get the nod there's something wrong!

That's what confirmed the fix and that everyone was in on it for me - the ref couldn't wait to give him that break (which he could have done at any time). the last round was 10-8 to levit and russian should have had standing count, feck knows what the Irish judge had been drinking!

Dreadful decision: Levit was the clear winner and was near to flattening the big dude who looked like he had the flu.

How was the fight scored?
Whoever thought the Russian won must see things differently from the old rules of boxing.

Joshua Buatsi beaten in the semis, by a tricky southpaw from Kazakhstan. Right decision, Buatsi wasn't able to outbox an opponent with better footwork and smarter movement. Great performance, though, to get this far!

The kazak who beat Buatsi should take up kabaddi.....ran away for three rounds then held on when the opponent was in range.....the referees don't help , worse than useless

I haven't seen the Conlon fight yet. rather controversial, I hear.
Report sean rua August 18, 2016 8:28 AM BST
Conlan won. Didn't get the decision. So-called winner injured.

Two Americans didn't get the right verdict either.

The rules and refs seem ridiculous now.

"  Hit without being hit" used to be the essence of boxing. It was called the noble art of self-defence.

The head injuries are invariably from head clashes or elbows, and there are very few knock downs let alone knock outs.
I remember Billy Walker used to be able to flatten them.

Something's different. A load of slapping.

Another poor decision. I can only think that the judges ruled that a lot of Joyce's punches landed on the arms. But, still, Joyce threw and landed more, to my mind, certainly won the 1st Rd and should have had a share of the 2nd at least. On aggression and volume of punches, Joyce should have won.

As someone else has said you don't get such decisions when judges are used in other sports. It must have happened that a diver/gymnast etc hasn't been happy but I can't remember there ever being a big deal about decisions being just so blooody wrong!
Report Des Pond August 21, 2016 8:02 PM BST
I hate to say it now. But I had a funny feeling about this one. When they were going on about Yoka and his fiance ( who won a gold), I thought to myself "they sound like they want a feel-good, romantic story". I was on Joyce pre-fight, but as soon as I saw the decision in the Sotomayor fight (which was close to be fair, but wrong, imo) I laid off my stake on Joyce, just had a feeling that he wouldn't get a fair shake. Good on Joe Joyce for being so calm about it.

Sports that rely on a 'judge' about who wins always have a problem, such as this case.

I'm not British but Team GB robbed of gold there. I've been watching boxing for over 35 years but I've no idea how to score an amateur fight after Conlon, the heavyweight final and now the super Heavyweight final. The Turkish judge gave the French boxer all 3 rounds !!! What was he watching. The sad thing about it is that nothing will change, in 4 years time (when this will all be forgotten about) we will have a new set of controversies and the same debates will come up again.
Report stu August 23, 2016 9:35 AM BST
Anyone else thinking a pro fight between Joyce and Yoka would be good? He'd smash the French poser into pieces which is prob why it would not happen.

As above though, I don't really get the point in amateur boxing - phoney sport really.

Conan was robbed. He clearly won the match. The scores from the judges were ridiculous.
Now he is to face possibly disciplinary action for his reaction to the result. Can you blame the guy ? He's put the last 4 years of his life into this - only to be cheated out of it.
Ironic that the head of the Board is making harsh statements against Conlan, whilst acknowledging that 6 judges were sent home for bad decision making. AND the whole scoring methodology is to be looked at following the result of the Conlan fight. In my book that's an admission that it was a wrong decision.
