Mongolia's Tugstsogt Nyambayar reaches the semi-finals of the Olympic flyweight tournament.

Mongolia's Tugstsogt Nyambayar has fought back to defeat Jasurbek Latipov of Uzbekistan in the Olympic flyweight tournament.

Latipov got the better of a close opening round to take a 5-4 lead. However, the Mongolian fought back well to put himself 9-8 in front after two rounds.

The Uzbek just seemed to lose concentration at a vital point in the bout and Nyambayar took full advantage.

The Mongolian landed nicely with a right-hand counter that forced a standing count. The result now looked all but certain.

Latipov ran out of steam in the final round and Nyambayar cruised to a 15-10 victory.
