Full London 2012 Boxing Coverage ]

Zou Shiming (China) def. Birzhan Zhakypov (Kazakhstan), 13-10: This was questionable scored in the second and third rounds, with Zou winning the frames 5-3 and 5-4, and Zhakypov had a plenty strong argument here. Zou, 31, has definitely slipped as those who have seen him since Beijing kept insisting. He was lucky here, and defending that 2008 gold is going to be a major task. It already has been, but on the other hand, you can say he's already beaten two good fighters.

Paddy Barnes (Ireland) def. Devendro Singh (India), 23-18: Scores were pretty fair. Both fighters had strong performances here, and either looked like they would have been hell for Zou next. The question now is, will Barnes get the full fair shake against Zou in the semifinals? Zou shut out Barnes in the semis in Beijing, 15-0.

David Ayrapetyan (Russia) def. Ferhat Pehlivan (Turkey), 19-11: Good win here for Ayrapetyan, who pretty much bossed this fight the entire way. There was never really a question about the outcome once it got started.

Kaeo Pongprayoon (Thailand) def. Aleksandar Aleksandrov (Bulgaria), 16-10: Kaeo was simply better than Aleksandrov here, and moves on to face Ayrapetyan. Both of those guys are small even for the weight (they're short, 5'2", 5'3" types)and both fought very well today.
