Blue Fighter's Victory too shameful even for Olympic boxing, match fixed?

Knockdowns are exceedingly rare in Olympic boxing.
Japan's Satoshi Shimizu knocked down Azerbaijan's Magomed Abdulhamidov five times in the third and final round of their bantamweight bout.


And yet, the judges scored the round in favor of the one who spent more time on the canvas than on his feet.

After Abdulhamidov was awarded the 22-17 victory over Shimizu, the uproar began. Fans rained boos from the stands, and Japanese officials immediately lodged a protest. It was, by any account, the biggest competitive disgrace of the Olympics so far.
