Boxing Body Expel Referee from Olympic Games

Quote
LONDON (AP) - An Olympic boxing referee from Turkmenistan has been expelled from the London Games over his handling of a bout in which the result was overturned on appeal.

Boxing's governing body, known as AIBA, says referee Ishanguly Meretnyyazov "is on his way back home."

In a bantamweight fight on Wednesday, Satoshi Shimizu of Japan was declared the loser despite repeatedly knocking down Magomed Abdulhamidov of Azerbaijan.

AIBA upheld Japan's appeal and said the referee "should have counted at least three" knockdowns and stopped the contest.

AIBA also has suspended German referee Frank Scharmach for five days, and expelled technical official Aghajan Abiyev of Azerbaijan. The governing body says Abiyev was responsible for "a number of breaches" of its code of conduct.
