USA Olympic Boxing

The United States Boxing Team has started off quite impressively at the London 2012 games with wins by every boxer over the weekend and Terrell Gausha’s recording of the only knockout in the tournament thus far. The only blemish to team USA was by Marcus Browne who lost to Australian Damien Hooper in the Light-Heavyweight division earlier this morning.

Gausha, 24, is from Cleveland Ohio and is the reigning Middleweight national title holder for the U.S.  He is one of the best chances for gold in the tournament. In the third round of his fight against 31-year-old Armenian Adranik Hakobyan, Gausha was down on the scorecard entering the final frame. With less than 20 seconds remaining in the fight Gausha landed two well-delivered shots to knock his opponent down for the first time. A second knockdown resulted from what may have seem by some as a late hit. Hakobyan was ruled to be unable to continue as the clock read zeroes.
