Team USA is down to one following flyweight Rau'Shee Warren's afternoon opener loss. Here's the quick rundown.

[ 8/3 Morning Results: Flyweight / Welterweight ]

Nordine Oubaali (France) def. Rau'Shee Warren (United States), 19-18: The scores were fair, and Warren lost this fight in the second and third rounds, getting beaten around and out-fought by the Frenchman, who has his second straight strong performance. After seeing in Oubaali in the round of 32, I said then that Warren was going to have a tough task in the round of 16. He did. Warren, in his third Olympics, got up 9-6 in the first round, but he faded while Oubaali rose to the occasion. Warren never did win an Olympic fight. I'm devastated for him, but he lost to a good fighter, and there's nothing you can do.

Michael Conlan (Ireland) def. Duke Micah (Ghana), 19-8: Conlan showed his class here, easily handling Ghana's Micah, who won a tough fighter over a Mauritian opponent in the first round. Micah was fun to watch in that one, at his level, but Conlan was a different story for him. Oubaali vs Conlan could be very good next round.

Robeisy Ramirez (Cuba) def. Chatchai Butdee (Thailand), 22-10: This was a real eye-opener. In the first round, Ramirez outpointed a solid-looking Japanese fighter by a tally of 19-7. Here, he blew out a guy who looked very good himself in the first round. Ramirez, 18, may be a major factor in this division. But he's up against it next round, too.

Andrew Selby (Great Britain) def. Ilyas Suleimenov (Kazakhstan), 19-15: Selby had a few issues here, and may well be vulnerable against the very talented Cuban in the quarterfinals. This wasn't the most promising start for Selby.
