Injured Ukrainian boxer misses bout
BEIJING (AP) Ukrainian super heavyweight Vyacheslav Glazkov missed Friday's semifinal bout with China's Zhang Zhilei because of a sprained elbow.
Glazkov failed his medical exam before the fight, the International Boxing Association said. He will still receive a bronze medal after his 10-4 quarterfinal victory over Ouatah Newfel of Algeria.
Zhang advanced by walkover to Sunday's championship fight against Italian world champion Roberto Cammarelle, who beat Britain's David Price on a second-round stoppage.
The super heavyweight championship bout will be the final fight of the Olympics.
