Day two of Olympic boxing in London has wrapped up, and Team USA has improved to 4-0 on the tournament, as Errol Spence outpointed Myke Carvalho of Brazil in the welterweight session opener this afternoon. Here's a rundown of the results, and updated welterweight brackets at the bottom. The welters are back on August 3.

[ Morning Results: Lightweight / Welterweight ]
[ Afternoon Results:
Lighweight ]

Welterweight (152 lbs/69 kg)

Errol Spence (United States) def. Myke Carvalho de Ribeiro (Brazil), 16-10: Carvalho was unpleasant, in my view. Spence just outboxed him, and was plain better than him, and with this win, Team USA is 4-for-4 to start the 2012 Olympics. Not bad. Spence does have a very tough matchup in the second round, as he'll face third-seeded Krishan Vikas of India.

Adam Nolan (Ireland) def. Carlos Sanchez (Ecuador), 14-8: This was the worst scoring so far, in my opinion. I thought Sanchez had an argument to have won the fight for sure, as he dominated the third and got all of two points out of it, while Nolan received three. Just bunk. Nolan was not impressive and he got out-fought badly in the third, and I thought lost the second round, too. What can you do?

Andrey Zamkovoy (Russia) def. Qiong Mai Maitituersun (China), 16-11: Zamkovoy controlled the fight pretty much all the way through, but never greatly distanced himself. Also wasn't much of a fight to watch. Styles just didn't gel.

Siphiwe Lusizi (South Africa) def. Ahmed Abdulkareem Ahmed (Iraq), 17-13: Decent fight, and an admirable effort from Ahmed. He gave it all he had, but Lusizi was better than him. A lot of these fights are really as simple as that. One guy is just better than the other guy in these early stages.

Gabriel Maestre (Venezuela) def Amin Ghasemi (Iran), 13-8: Maestre took a bit of flak for protecting his lead in round three, but, well, whatever. Ghasemi could have done better and not found himself in that position.

Yasuhiro Suzuki (Japan) def. Mehdi Khalsi (Morocco), 14-13: Suzuki won this on the strength of a 6-4 final round. First round was 5-5, second went to Khalsi, 4-3. This was pretty even throughout. Unfortunately for Suzuki, he moves on to face Kazakhstan's Serik Sapiyev on August 3.
