London+: Indian boxer Sumit Sangwan went down 14-15 under controversial circumstances to Brazilian Yamaguchi Falcao Florentino in the round of 32 of 81kg category at the London Olympics here on Monday. Union Ajay Maken has already asked Chef de Mission Brig P K Muralidharan Raja to lodge an official protest. (update: Appeal rejected)
The 19-year-old Indian fought valiantly and should have won more points but the judges thought otherwise. ESPN commentators were surprised by the verdict and called it "daylight robbery".
Sangwan looked to have taken the first round but the judges decision meant he was left trailing by one point.
