London Olympics 2012: Azerbaijani boxer knocked down five times but winsZeenews Sports Bureau

London: Boxing competition in the London Olympics 2012 was mired in yet another controversy on Wednesday after Japanese bantamweight boxer Satoshi Shimizu lodged a complaint following a defeat against Magomed Abdulhamidov even after knocking down his Azerbaijani opponent five times.

Shimizu had to lodge US$500 for an appeal and will learn on Thursday if he has been successful.

Shimizu, 5-12 down going into the third round, clearly finished on top but the aggregate score, eliminating the two extreme scores among the five judges, was 10-10. Abdulhamidov, who also received a two-point penalty in the contest, was led back to the locker room on wobbling legs.

"I was shocked by the final scores," Shimizu said. "He fell down so many times. Why didn`t I win? I don`t understand."


"I did do my best," Shimizu said. "I performed really well. England is the place of boxing and the spectators supported me so well so I am very pleased about that."

Few days ago India`s appeal against the result of a controversial opening-round loss of boxer Sumit Sangwan (81kg) was rejected by the jury that reviewed his bout against Brazilian Yamaguchi Falcao Florentino.

Sumit lost 14-15 to Florentino in a closely-contested bout which left the Indian team prompting a quick protest. Sangwan found himself on the wrong side of the judges` scoring pattern as the boxer, despite dominating the second and third rounds, did not get enough points for his efforts
