The light flyweights have wrapped up their opening round. Here are the results from this afternoon in London, with updated brackets at the end of the post.

[ July 31 Morning Results: Light Flyweights / Light Welterweights ]

Light Flyweight (108 lbs/49kg) (8/4)

Jantony Ortiz (Puerto Rico) def. Tetteh Sulemanu (Ghana), 20-6: Nice performance from Ortiz, the young Puerto Rican who now moves on to face David Ayrapetyan of Russia in the next round, which is a tall order for him. Didn't really feel quite like the 14-point blowout it was scored, but Ortiz was a clear winner.

Ferhat Pehlivan (Turkey) def. Carlos Suarez (Trinidad & Tobago), 16-6: Suarez was kind of a clown. He reminded me a bit of Anthony Small. Pehlivan was vastly better than Suarez, who did OK early, but once he figured out that he couldn't do enough to win, he just gooned out.

Carlos Quipo (Ecuador) def. Jose Linares (Spain), 14-11: Solid performance from Quipo, but he didn't have the look of a guy who can make a long run. It sort of felt like two middle of the pack guys getting lucky to be matched together.

Kaeo Pongprayoon (Thailand) def. Mohamed Flissi (Algeria), 19-11: Flissi was the dirtiest fighter we've seen to date, clearly frustrated by the smaller Pongprayoon repeatedly hitting him with clean shots and taking enough shortcuts to have been DQ'd probably, but the referee was extremely passive.

Aleksandr Aleksandrov (Bulgaria) def. Juliano Maquina (Mozambique), 22-7: An outclassing in this one, as Aleksandrov was in a far higher league than Maquina, who was tough and that's about it. Aleksandrov landed right hands at will.
