Did anyone see the Ali Mazaheri fight? I know clinching is illegal in ammy boxing but I thought that rule was universally ignored.

Not this year. The American got put back in, after being eliminated, because of that rule.

Good thing that decision was over turned, but it's not good to have it keep happening. Mind you, there have been appeals in several other sports so maybe it's not just a boxing thing. Any sport that relies on judging is going to have it's controversies, but then what else do you do?
Whatever the result, there are some great skills on display and it is interesting to try and pick future pro stars from it. That will get clearer as the field narrows and I really quite excited that I have tickets to the final on the 11th; I'll try and do a proper write up of that.

Don't worry unless it is an already completed event without a thread. Just put the word "spoiler" in the title. Also, the Staff usually adds "spoiler" because most threads are started well before the actual event.
True, but there is an issue when it is so large of an occurrence in one event.

Overall, the worst officiating ever.
Bring back the hand held clicker thingies.

Favorite Teddy Atlas quote so far:
"The women came to the olympics asking to be treated just like the men. Unfortunately, they have been." [This after more egregious officiating.]

Boxing judging = shitty already. Only the IOC could somehow make that worse and more ridiculous.
