    Thanks for posting this. The 1988 U.S. Olympic boxing team has a special
    place in my heart. It’s the last great U.S. Olympic boxing team.

    I seen Mwema fight once as a pro against Fast Eddie Cook. He floored Cook
    and then was ko’ed with one punch.

    only a knock out could secure a win against them

    ESPN or HBO should interview Ray Mercer, Roy Jones, Riddick Bowe, Kennedy
    Mckinney and Carbajal all on the same show. I would love to hear their
    thoughts on their 1988 experience in Soul especially after Roy got Robbed.
    Obviously Kennedy Mckinney, Roy Jones and Riddick Bowe all had very
    successful careers as professional fighters. Bowe, Jones and Mckinney all
    are Hall of Fame fighters….

    I remember when the red received the votes jones/park si-Hun fight, the ref
    just grabbed the ropes n shook his head. Even the ref knew he was robbed

    a knock out in olympic boxing is pretty freakin’ good. that biased judging
    on a few of the bouts really sucks.

    still won r such assholes those young men from the other countrys work from
    5-8 in the morning in boxing and do daily life n work out in the evening
    and really do bust their ass n end up not winning the gold they obviously
    deserved and rightly fully earned. gahh those guys who didnt win r

    This is REAL FIGHTING! LITERALLY! you wouldnt plan on two people on the
    street fighting mma but they would throw punches and those r what is what
    everyone knows how to do throw a punch but when ur trained from the day ur
    7 years old to ur 23 yrs old goin to the olympics ur a fucking badass and
    ur reallly fighting ur hitting eachother so hard not going down when ur
    hurt standing up weathering a storm of punches and ur on the ropes. thats
    fighting this is real and true fighting.

    Jones vs Hun was the worst decision in boxing history, amateur or pro. Had
    that fight occurred in 92 or later, Hun would have lost due to stoppage.

    The last great year in US Olympic Boxing. Roy Jones robbery was the worst
    thing to happen in amauter boxing after it came the computer score system
    which killed amauter boxing forever. Jones, Carbajal, Bowie, and McKinney
    the best pro fighters out of these games!!
