Muhammed Ali


Drawn against the Venezuelan boxer Yoel Finol, Ali of 20 years old in is first Olympics took a defeat to his opponent of 19 years. Ali described the defeat as 'heart-breaking', “I have been out here for a month and I just wanted to get in the ring – perhaps I over trained.” Ali's exit sees the 8th British boxer leave Rio 2016.

The young boxer has great potential and with continued training post Rio Ali could be returning in Tokyo 2020 to achieve Olympic status.
