Adjust font size:

Yudel Johnson Cedeno set a second Cuban victory on Friday, beating Boris Georgiev of Bulgaria 13-9 to reach final of the light welter weight (64kg) in the AthensOlympic boxing tournament.

The more fancied Cuban was forced to have his hands full against the 20-year-old Bulgarian, tied 2-2 in both second and fourth rounds.

Georgiev, who has been one of the stand-out boxers of the Olympic tournament, failed to show his brilliant form with quick hands, good footwork and excellent ring craft in all his former bouts here against Cedeno.

The Bulgarian, however, settled for a bronze medal with the semi-final defeat.
