Cuba's Roniel Iglesias upset top-seeded Brazilian light welterweight Everton Dos Santos, while top-seeded light heavyweight Julio La Cruz of Cuba trounced Jordan's Ihab Almatbouli. Irish light flyweight Paddy Barnes easily advanced to to a quarterfinal bout with India's Devendro Laishram, who posted a sensational 16-11 upset of fourth-seeded Serdamba Purevdorj of Mongolia, the silver medalist in Beijing. India's veteran coach, Gurbankhsh Singh Sandhu, said his promising team must move on quickly from AIBA's decision to overturn the result of welterweight Krishan Vikas' foul-plagued fight against American Errol Spence on Friday night.
