    In fairness to Haye, while he faced limited competition at heavyweight, he beat some serious fighters as a cruiserweight. Still, total cry baby on Saturday night.

    Big Day today for the Irish boxing team in Baku, at the world boxing xhampionships. 7 boxers fighting with 6 fighting for a place at the London olympics.

    A mixed start - Heavyweight Joe Ward was beaten on countback after a 15-15 draw against Iranian Ehsan Rouzbahani, but better news for Middleweight Darren O'Neill who has secured olympic qualification after a 19-12 win against Mladen Manev of Bulgaria - he will now fight a Japanese fighter in the quarter finals.

    Bantamweight John Joe Nevin in the ring now against a Mongolian opponent, its 4-4 after round 1 but John Joe took a standing count.

    - Edit, despite 2 x standing counts Nevin has beaten his opponent on countback after a 18-18 draw. He is Irelands 2nd boxer to qualify for the olymipcs and will now face Shaymov of Uzbekistan in the quarters.

    Nevin is through, 19-19 at the end. Nevin was very fortunate in my uninformed opinion.

    David Joyce loses out 32 -30, scrappy 3rd round where Joyce made up a lot of ground but a warning with 4 seconds to go probably cost him dear.

    Sheehan didn't have a prayer in the heifer weight class against the current champ, Rocky Bilbao.

    Just to wrap up, Roy Sheehan is out also Beaten by a Lithuanian opponent. Not the end of the line regarding olympic qualification with the European Championships in April offering various spots depending on how many europeans qualify from these games.

    3 Irish go for medals tomorrow, John Joe Nevin and Darren O' Neill in the afternoon session, Michael Conlon in the evening session. Good luck to them.

    And some of those beaten may qualify for the olympics if their conquerers reach the final (Ward, Roy Sheehan, Joyce)

    Out of that bunch of conquerers, I was impressed with the Lithuanian who beat Roy Sheehan, but I haven't a clue how good Roy is.
    Conlon atm looks superb talented boxer, a young buck but with an old head and boundless stamina.

    John Joe Nevin has Beaten Orzubek Shaymov of Uzbekistan 19-17 to win at least a bronze medal at the World championships.

    However Darren O'Neill has lost 18-9 to Ryota Murata of Japan.

    I see Nevin got through to the semis, I missed that one but I saw O'Neill getting pummeled to jelly in his content, not battered just well beaten.

    Rocky Conlon just losing out by a point. That was some contest, both boxed right to end, to a standstill in the last 3 seconds. The Welsh guy, Selby did all his boxing on the retreat while Conlon attacked him all around the ring.

    Nevin lost his semi on countback. Finished 12-12 after 3 rounds. i think he can feel a little aggrieved tbh

    John Joe Nevin edged out on a count back after a 12-12

    Is the scoring a bit different now in these amateur bouts? Here in this competition, each judge gives his score and the average score is taken from the 5 at the end of each round. It use to be something else? where points were scored when judges hit the button simultaneously and the score would show instantaneously on the screen. A mad affair to try and watch a contest with one eye on the score card.

    And they have got rid
