Errol Spence Ruling Going To Stand, Says The AIBA

India will appeal against the International Boxing Association's (AIBA) decision to overturn a result that cost Vikas Krishan a quarterfinal spot at the London Olympics, but the organisation said they do not have grounds to do so.

World amateur bronze medallist Krishan originally won his welterweight bout against Errol Spence 13-11 but, after reviewing video footage, AIBA declared the American the winner.

The governing body said its competition jury found Spence should have been awarded four additional points for fouls committed by the Indian, handing the US men a lifeline after the original result appeared to condemn them to their worst result at the Olympic Games.

"The whole country is furious about this decision. The jury are gone back home after last night so just before the session starts today we will be meeting them to make a formal appeal,- chef de mission P. K. M. Raja said in London yesterday.

"My sports minister has contacted me, government officials, the whole country is very upset about this decision.- However AIBA said the jury's decision was final.
