Spence loses again, no medals for USA Boxing

USA Olympic welterweight Errol Spence didn’t take advantage of his second chance, losing a 16-11 decision to Russian Andrey Zamkovoy in the men’s boxing Olympic quarterfinals on Tuesday night. Spence lost his previous fight in the ring, but that decision was overturned after a protest. In total, after four straight wins American boxers left the ring as losers in ten straight bouts assuring the worst performance ever and only medal shutout in history for the once proud boxing nation that has won more Olympic boxing medals overall than any other country. The only bright spot is two USA female boxers, Marlen Esparza and Claressa Shields, who are assured of claiming medals in the newly added women’s division.
