Conlan denied by the judges

Michael Conlan has been denied an Olympic medal after the judges ruled Vladimir Nikitin won their Bantamweight quarter-final in Rio.

Judging at the Rio Olympics has been criticised over the course of the games and it came to the fore once again as Conlan was denied a place in the semi-finals.

Conlan clearly had the edge on his opponent in the opening fight, landing a series of combinations, but the judges award the round to the Russian 10-9 on all three cards.

The Irish fighter responded with some heavy shots in the second and was duly rewarded the round to leave the bout finely poised heading into the third and final round.

Once again Conlan dominated the round, landing more punches than Nikitin and as the bell sounded the Irish fighter raised his arm in triumphant, while the Russian looked disconsolate as he made his way back to the corner.

However, all three judges gave the final round to Nikitin to make him the unanimous winner and end Conlan's Olympic dream.

"I was here to win Olympic gold my dream’s been shattered now," an angry Conlan told RTÉ Sport.

"But you know what, I’ve a big career ahead of me and these ones, they’re known for being cheats and they’ll always be cheats.

"Amateur boxing stinks from the core to the top."
