Heavyweights Teymur Mammadov of Azerbaijan and Clemente Russo of Italy both clutched, grabbed and held their way through their quarterfinal bouts at ExCel arena, yet both highly ranked amateurs won narrow scoring decisions that surprised fans and enraged their opponents.

Amateur boxing's governing body confirmed Belarus has protested Siarhei Karneyeu's loss to Mammadov. Jose Larduet's Cuban coach says they'll protest his loss to Russo.
