The middleweight gold medal match is set for tomorrow in London. Here are the semifinal results.

Esquiva Falcao (Brazil) def. Anthony Ogogo (Great Britain), 16-9: Ogogo's run ends here, as Falcao just had too much speed, too much power, and too much in-ring class for him, but it was quite a run indeed. Even if you disagree with Ogogo having gotten through to this point, there's no arguing that he gave substantial effort every fight, and gave everyone a stern test -- until now. No shame in losing to Falcao, who has been terrific all the way.

Ryoto Murata (Japan) def. Abbos Atoev (Uzbekistan), 13-12: Good. Atoev had no business being here. The fight started really slow, but did pick up in the last round and a half or so. The difference wound up being a warning against Atoev, giving Murata two points, but Murata probably got the shaft by a point at least in the first round anyway, which Atoev won 4-1.
