I was just coming on here to post this. Excellent news. Here's the sky sports article:
Japan have successfully appealed against boxer Satoshi Shimizu's controversial Olympic Games defeat to Magomed Abdulhamidov at ExCeL.
Shimizu was trailing 12-5 going into the final round but then hurt Azeri Abdulhamidov with a body shot and proceeded to floor him five rounds, during which time Abdulhamidov also received a two-point penalty.
The judges contrived to score the final round equal at 10-10, which, with the addition of two points to Shimizu's score, gave the Azeri - who had to be helped out the ring on unsteady legs - a 22-17 victory.
An International Boxing Association (AIBA) investigation is now underway to find out how the judges came to their original decision, with action against the referee, Ishanguly Meretnyyazov of Turkmenistan, a possibility.
AIBA said the result had been overturned with Shimizu now declared the winner, and he goes forward to the quarter-finals.
An AIBA statement released in the early hours read: "After reviewing the video of bout #105 involving bantamweights Satoshi Shimizu (Japan) and Magomed Abdulhamidov (Azerbaijan), the competition jury made the following decision:
"The boxer from Azerbaijan fell down six times during the third round. According to our rules, the referee should have counted at least three times.
"In this case, following the AIBA technical & competition rules, the decision should have been RSC (referee stop contest).
"Therefore the protest lodged by the Japanese corner is accepted and the result of this bout overturned.
"AIBA officials will consider on Thursday morning whether to sanction the referee of this bout."
Britain's former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis: "I'm concerned about the judging. You never who is going to win until the end of fight."
