[ July 31 Morning Results:
Light Flyweights ]

Light Welterweight (141 lbs/64kg)

Roniel Iglesias (Cuba) def. Cesar Villarraga (Colombia), 20-9: The Cubans continue rolling. None of the few who have seen action so far have met much resistance. Iglesias looked really sharp here, and may be a handful for top-seeded Everton Lopes of Brazil in the next round.

Uktamjon Rahmonov (Uzbekistan) def. Anderson Rojas (Ecuador), 16-10: Rahmonov scored a peach of a left hand in the third that led to a standing eight, and just landed the better shots throughout the fight. He was solid overall.

Yakup Sener (Turkey) def. Serge Ambomo (Cameroon), 19-10: Sener had to survive a big rush from Ambomo in the third, but still outpointed him by three in the round. Ambomo had some power, but Sener's technique was superior and led him to the victory.

Daniyar Yeleussinov (Kazakhstan) def. Jamel Herring (United States), 19-9: Herring, a former Marine, gave effort here, but he was simply out of his depth against Yeleussinov, who is very good. By the third, Yeleussinov was toying with him a bit, knowing Herring couldn't figure out how to get to him. Team USA falls to 4-2 overall in the round of 32.

Mehdi Toloutibandpi (Iran) def. Jonathan Alonso (Spain), 16-12: Toloutibandpi did well throughout, just won every round and was clearly the better overall fighter. Alonso was defensively open and on offense, a bit sloppy.

Gyula Kate (Hungary) def. Eslam Mohamed (Egypt), 16-10: Odd scoring in this fight, as Mohamed nicked the first 3-2 even though Kate did better work, and Kate won the third, 7-3, even though it was by far Mohamed's best round. Right guy won though -- Kate dominated the second and should have been up a couple after one, too. Kate now faces Italy's Vincenzo Mangiacapre in round two.
