Hernandez Gives Cuba Another Quarterfinalist

July 27, 1996|Times Wire Services

Reigning Olympic middleweight champion Ariel Hernandez gave Cuba its fourth quarterfinalist by outpointing Sven Ottke of Germany, 5-0, in a bout roundly booed for its lack of action.

Ottke was on the defensive throughout the fight, and at times frustrated Hernandez, who was only leading, 1-0, after the first round.

Even after Hernandez had increased his lead to 4-0 in the third round, Ottke threw almost no punches.

In a 106-pound bout, Daniel Petrov of Bulgaria, a 1992 Olympic silver medalist and the reigning world and European champion, outpointed Nshan Munchyan of Armenia 11-5.
