Katie Taylor vs Natasha Jonas was comfortably the best fight I've seen at this games.

If you want to watch the absolute definition of why amateur boxing is useless have a look at the Italian Heavyweight Russo. I don't know exactly to call what he does but it's certainly not boxing. It's infuriated me at two consecutive games now.

I agree amatuer boxing is awful, corrupt, technically flawed and just plain ugly to watch.

I don't like the scoring system, tried to explain why but it ended up as nonsense. However I do like the basic idea of a knockout tournament in boxing.

I agree. The judging sucks and the scoring is the worst.

Here are some tweets collected talking about Olympic Boxing and most of them are dogging it.

The amateurs are a completely different sport from professional boxing.....that's why I don't pay any attention to it.
