Tokyo Olympics 2020: Here Are The Final Winners In Olympic Boxing

Another round of Olympic boxing has officially come to a close.

The Tokyo Olympic Games has seen some stunning knockouts, energized boxers and surprising wins, but only the best were able to come out with a medal.

Galal Yafai bagged Great Britain’s first gold medal in boxing after defeating featherweight Carlo Paalam, of Philippines.

Brazil’s Hebert Sousa made a comeback in the middleweight bout after knocking out Ukraine’s Oleksandr Khyzhniak, a top seed, in the final round.

Cuba’s Roniel Iglesias continued the legacy of the country’s hitting powerhouse with a 5-0 victory over Great Britain’s Pat McCormack in the men’s welterweight final.

Stoyka Krasteva, of Bulgaria, secured her 5-0 win over top-seeded Buse Naz Cakiroglu of Turkey in the women’s flyweight final. The 36-year-old dominated her final four opponents to win Bulgaria’s fifth overall boxing gold. Her Floyd Mayweather-like stance proved to be dominant in the ring.

Meanwhile, the 17-year gold medal drought for Team USA continues after boxer Keyshawn Davis dropped a split decision to Cuba’s Andy Cruz in the lightweight gold medal match.

Richard Torrez Jr. lost his bout against Uzebekistan’s Bakhodir Jalolov via unanimous decision in the super heavyweight final. Duke Ragan fell short of a gold medal in the men’s featherweight battle against Russian Olympic Committee’s Albert Batyrgaziev.
