Ukrainian boxer misses bout with elbow injury

Aug. 22, 2008, 2:34 a.m. (ET)

BEIJING (AP) Ukrainian super heavyweight Vlacheslav Glazkov failed a medical examination for his semifinal bout against China's Zhang Zhilei on Friday.

Glazkov has a sprained elbow, International Boxing Association (AIBA) spokesman Richard Baker said. He still will 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 the winner of Italian world champion Roberto Cammarelle's semifinal with Britain's David Price. The super heavyweight championship bout will be the final fight of the Olympics.
