Cuba's hopes of boxing gold medals were dented again as their boxer Yankiel Leon Alarcon was outclassed by Badar-Uugan Enkhbat from Mongolia in the men's bantam (54kg) final of the Beijing Games boxing event on Sunday.

Enkhbat, 23, was in a class of his own and withstood a comeback from the Cuban en route to the 16-5 victory, which brought the first gold medal of the event and the second overall for Mongolia.

The Mongolian made a solid start by leading 4-2 in the first round and stretched the lead to a comfortable 8-5 in the second.

Enkhbat, the reigning Asian champion, then reeled off the next eight points to close out the match at 16-5.
