Olympics: Just 2 American boxers left

The U.S. Olympic Boxing Team was unable to end its losing streak on Thursday following two closely contested losses in second round action at the 2012 Olympic Games. Lightweight Jose Ramirez’s slow start cost him with Uzbekistan’s Fazliddin Gaibnazarov while middleweight Terrell Gausha dropped a one-point heartbreaker to former Olympic medalist Vijender of India. The two remaining American boxers will compete on Friday night as three-time Olympian Rau’shee Warren makes his 2012 Olympic Games debut in a flyweight contest with France’s Nordine Oubaali at 8:30 p.m. London time (3:30 p.m. ET). Welterweight Errol Spence will return to the ring for his second bout with India’s Krishan Vikas at 9:30 p.m. London time (4:30 p.m. ET). The three American women will open competition on August 5 and 6. Click here for a full report on all bouts.
