Olympics: Keyshawn Davis TKOs top seed

USA lightweight Keyshawn Davis, considered to be USA Boxing’s best gold medal hope, scored a key win over top-seeded Sofiane Oumiha of France in a Round of 16 bout on Saturday in the Kokugikan Arena at the Tokyo Olympics. Davis (3-0, 2 KOs as a pro) staggered Oumiha with a huge right hand in round two and the bout was halted. Rio Olympics silver medalist Oumiha was definitely rocked and took a standing eight count, but he seemed ready to resume when the ref abruptly waved it off to the surprise of everyone. Oumiha complained bitterly to no avail. Davis will move on to the quarterfinals against Russian Gabil Mamedov.

Davis, along with USA super heavyweight Richard Torrez Jr., USA featherweight Duke Ragan, and USA female welterweight Oshae Jones remain in the gold medal hunt.

WBA interim lightweight champion Rolando “Rolly” Romero (14-0, 12 KOs) bludgeoned Anthony Yigit (24-2-1, 8 KOs) for seven rounds on Saturday night at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. Late sub Yigit missed weight by 5 pounds. Romero dropped Yigit at the end of round five, moments after he had a point deducted. Romero then dropped Yigit twice more in round seven to end it. Time was 1:54.

“I won’t rate my performance but I got a vicious knockout and I hurt him multiple times in the fight. Every time I landed something, I hurt him,” said Romero. “The European style is always awkward and he was a bigger dude. He’s a 140-pounder. If I had those extra five pounds, I would have got him out of there earlier.

“He was hurt [in the fifth] but the bell rang so I didn’t have time to finish him. If I had that extra time, I would have got him. He was holding, he didn’t really want to engage because he was really hurt. He was scared.

“The punches he landed clean, I saw them coming. I have to work on more combinations. I had a bad camp – at the beginning I hurt both of my ankles and my right hand. I was in a car accident a week and a half ago. My body was still sore from that yet I still took the fight.

“I need to go to 140. It’s my natural weight class. I feel I’ll be a lot stronger. I was at 135 for, what, four years now? It’s about time I move up.”

In a total slugfest, unbeaten middleweight Amilcar Vidal (13-0, 11 KOs) escaped with a ten round majority decision against Immanuwel Aleem (18-3-2, 11 KOs). Aleem gave Vidal all he could handle. Scores were 95-95, 97-93, 97-93 for the A-side. Scattered boos from the crowd.
