Thai middleweight fighter wins 9-3 : On August 10th , 2008
Middleweight Angkhan Chomphuphuang beat South Korea's Cho Deok-jin 9-3 in his first Olympic bout last night.
In the round of 32, both looked nervous in the opening round which ended in a lacklustre scoreless draw. The first point was won by Angkhan midway through the second round as he went on to lead 3-0 at halfway.
But Angkhan, 26, received a scare early in the third round when he was deducted two points for grabbing as the Korean cut the deficit to 3-2. However, Cho was also deducted two points near the end of the third round with Angkhan building a 6-2 lead.
Angkhan, who won a gold in wushu at the 2002 Asian Games, had few problems in the final round and won 9-3. "It was the first bout and I still could not find my rhythm. I will become better," said Angkhan.
In the round of 16, the former Muay Thai fighter from Lop Buri will have a formidable task against Vijender Kumar who hammered Gambia's Badou Jack 13-2.
Kumar, best boxer at the first Asian Olympic qualifiers in Bangkok in February, will be eager to avenge his controversial defeat against Angkhan in the President Cup in Taiwan in May.
The Indian stunned 2004 Olympic welterweight champ Bakhtiyar Artayev of Kazakhstan but lost to Angkhan in the semis.
Angkhan was warned twice during the bout for blocking and evasion. Indian authorities were unhappy and lodged a complaint with International Amateur Boxing Association president Ching-Kuo Wu.
