The Olympic gold medal hopes of Providence's Demetrious Andrade, the world's No. 1 amateur was dashed when he was outscored by Korea's Jungjoo Kim 11-9.

The bout was a close fought exhibition, but it appeared that Andrade was the busiest of the two fighters, but was denied scoring opportunities, Andrade said in his post-fight press conference.

He said he was "Jones-ed", a reference to Roy Jones' loss to a Korean fighter 20 years ago at the Seoul Games.
