Manoj Kumar claims the London 2012 boxing tournament is full of cheating after a controversial defeat to Team GB's Tom Stalker.

Indian boxer Manoj Kumar has claimed that the London 2012 boxing tournament is "full of cheating, cheating, cheating".

The light-welterwight was beaten 20-16 in the round of 16 by Team GB captain Tom Stalker last night.

Kumar was unhappy with the result, claiming that the British fighters are being given favourable treatment by the judges at the Games and openly shouted "cheating" as he left the arena. The fighter also said that the tournament has been like a "district competition".

"It doesn't look fair because he was going in one direction and the scores of 7-4 and 9-4 to him don't justify that," said Kumar.

"It doesn't look like an Olympic Games but more like a district competition because if it's Great Britain in the ring, it doesn't matter.

"It's like a district competition where there is lots of cheating, cheating, cheating."

Kumar claimed gold in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
