Boxing: U.S. hope Shields will go for golden hat-trick (Reuters)
By Alan Baldwin RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – The U.S. boxing team won no more golds in Rio than in London four years ago — none for the men and one for the women — but there were signs of progress even as others piled up the medals. While French fiancées Tony Yoka and Estelle Mossely both won gold, and Uzbekistan and Cuba won three each, the U.S. tally of a gold, silver and bronze represented an improvement on 2012 for the former powerhouse. Retaining Claressa Shields, now a two times women’s middleweight champion at the age of 21 and full of confidence, will be important going forward to Tokyo 2020.
