LONDON -- The third time still wasn't charming for Rau'shee Warren, a boxing medal favorite eliminated by France's Nordine Oubaali via decision, 19-18, in a match that would have sent the U.S. flyweight to the quarterfinals. Instead, Warren failed in his third consecutive Olympics, losing a bout he led going into the third and final round, 14-13, Friday at the ExCeL Arena. "I thought I had the decision," Warren said afterward. Warren's loss was a blow to the reeling state of U.S. men's boxing, which picked up only one bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics and had only one fighter left in the London Games after Warren, welterweight Errol Spence.

LONDON -- U.S. boxers Rau'shee Warren, Marlen Esparza and Claressa Shields will all have to wait a bit longer than the rest of team to begin their Olympic experience after receiving first-round byes when the draw was conducted Friday. However, that's not the case for bantamweight Joseph Diaz Jr. of South El Monte, who will get the Olympic tournament started Saturday when he meets Pavlo Ishchenko of the Ukraine. The U.S. has won five silver medals in the 56-kilo (124 pounds) category, more than any country at that weight.

LONDON — Remember all that giddy talk about the huge strides U.S. boxing had made by winning its first four bouts at these Olympics? Never mind. Because the last five Americans to enter the London ring have left as losers, with bantamweight Joseph Diaz Jr., heavyweight Michael Hunter II and super-heavyweight Dominic Breazeale all falling like dominoes Wednesday in the round of 16. PHOTOS: London Olympics, Day 5 That leaves the U.S. careening toward another disastrous Olympic performance after winning only one bronze medal in Beijing four years ago. Once the world's dominant boxing nation, the U.S. has won only one gold since 1996 and only three medals since 2000.

Alhambra super-heavyweight Dominic Breazeale is among seven American boxers who will try to earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic boxing team starting next week in Rio de Janeiro. Breazeale and four others have been training in Carson at a facility known as "the Rock," including light-flyweight Santos Vasquez of Reno, lightweight Jose Ramirez of Avenal, light-welterweight Jamel Herring of Coram, N.Y., and middleweight Terrell Gausha of Cleveland. The final Americas qualifier tournament in Brazil on May 5-13 will require a minimum top-five finish by the fighters to land a spot on the U.S. team, otherwise the weight class will be vacated by the U.S. in the London Games.

LONDON — What a difference four years, a new coaching staff, a new executive director and eight new boxers can make. In the 2008 Beijing Games, the U.S. Olympic boxing team turned in the worst performance in its history, winning only a single bronze medal while seeing seven of its nine fighters eliminated before the quarterfinals. But two days into the competition at this summer's London Games, the U.S. is unbeaten in four bouts after wins Sunday from lightweight Jose Ramirez and welterweight Errol Spence.

The only thing Rau'shee Warren loves more than boxing is his family. So it's a pity he can't have both in the same country at the same time. Twice Warren has fought in the Olympic Games, once in Greece, once in China. Twice Warren has brought his mother Paulette. And twice he has lost his first bout. So when Warren steps into the ring this summer in England, Mom will be watching on TV back home in Ohio. "The ticket problems, the worrying about your family getting to the event — that's more distraction, taking your focus off what you came there for," Warren says.

LONDON - The young U.S. boxers had their noses bloodied once again Thursday with lightweight Jose Ramirez and middleweight Terrell Gausha the latest to be eliminated from the Olympic tournament. After winning its first four fights, the U.S. team has lost seven consecutive bouts. Gausha dropped a controversial 16-15 decision to veteran Vijender Singh of India, and Ramirez was outpointed by Uzbekistan's Fazliddin Gaibnazarov, 15-11. With only two male boxers - flyweight Rau'shee Warren and welterweight Errol Spence - still alive, this U.S. group is on pace to eclipse the 2008 team as the worst of all time.

Josh Hamilton, B.J. Upton and Kyle Lohse were among nine free agents who turned down $13.3-million offers from their former clubs Friday as the annual general managers' meetings ended and team officials headed home for what figures to be a busy month of negotiations. Also rejecting the one-year guaranteed offers were the New York Yankees' trio of Nick Swisher, Rafael Soriano and Hiroki Kuroda along with David Ortiz, Michael Bourn and Adam LaRoche. :: Charlie Beljan had trouble breathing even before he teed off, called for paramedics when he made the turn and even told his caddie at one point Friday that he thought he might die. With his job on the line at Disney, he kept right on playing until he had a remarkable eight-under 64 to build a three-shot lead going into the weekend at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The next question is if Beljan can even play on the weekend.

A year ago, Najah Ali was trying to survive in the chaos of his native Iraq, hoping to earn a degree in computer science while the world exploded around him. The Olympics weren't even in his universe. Wednesday evening, he was standing in the ring at Peristeri Olympic Boxing Hall, his arm raised in victory after his first Olympic match. A light-flyweight (106 pounds), Ali had beaten Kwak Hyok Ju of North Korea, 21-7. "I don't know how I find myself here," he said. Simple.

It has been so long since Andre Ward lost a fight, he can't remember the details. For the record, it was six years and more than 100 amateur bouts ago, against Jesus Gonzales. Ward's ability to keep that streak going here may be the best chance the U.S. has of winning Olympic gold in boxing for the first time in eight years. Three U.S. fighters boxed Thursday, but Ward was the only winner.
