In my book, the best boxer of the games was Kazakhstan’s welterweight Daniyar Yelussinov.
The 25-year-old – backed on Twitter by countryman Gennady Golovkin – began his gold medal pursuit by outclassing Britain’s Josh Kelly and ended it with a win against Uzbekistan’s Shakram Giyasov.
Even a horrendous cut from his semi-final, caused by a clash of heads, could not hinder his display.
The defensive skills of the hard-hitting southpaw, especially standing in the pocket, were remarkable at times and he does not lack confidence or ring craft.
With the possible exception of Cuba’s brilliant bantamweight Robeisy Ramirez, I didn’t see a more dominant fighter. The biggest puncher was undoubtedly Kelly’s compatriot Joshua Buatsi, who scored two stoppages on his way to light-heavyweight bronze.
I can see the relevance of Anthony Joshua taking a BBC pundit’s post during the tournament.
Ahead of Joyce’s super-heavyweight final, he offered viewers in the UK a fascinating insight into the mind of a man preparing for the fight of his life.
But what did we do to deserve the insufferable John Inverdale?
Like nearly every Olympic scoring system, this didn’t work well either and their partnership was chaotic at best.
The new Frank Bruno and Harry Carpenter they are not.
Shakur Stevenson’s honesty in defeat to Ramirez was refreshing.
He was in tears after the bout but had no complaints about his loss to the sublime Ramirez, now a two-time Olympic champion after winning flyweight gold four years ago.
Stevenson, who took the second round on the judges’ cards, told NBC: “I felt like the Cuban won. Much respect to him. I just don’t like to lose so I’m hurt.”
The youngster, from Newark, appears to be a class act. He also lived up to the pre-tournament hype – and there was a lot of it – showing fans why he has been tipped to shine in the professional ranks.
