Tokyo 2020: Pat McCormack puts on masterclass in Olympic boxing and Caroline Dubois also through for Team GB
PAT McCORMACK lived up to his billing as Team GB’s best boxer as he stormed through his opening welterweight bout.
And Caroline Dubois showed why she has arrived in Tokyo as a contender for gold as she eased through as well.
Top seed McCormack, 26, whose twin brother Luke has already made a winning lightweight start, was simply far too good for Aliaksandr Radzionau of Belarus.
The Sunderland slugger dominated from the off to win by a unanimous points decision.
Only the Sri Lanka judge, who surprisingly awarded the first to his opponent, denied him a clean sweep of the board.
Dubois is the sister of heavyweight pro Daniel.
And she was always in control against Kosovan Donjeta Sadiku.
The Londoner had more problems with a slipping headguard than her Balkan opponent. Dubois, 20, took every round with each judge.
She now faces Rashida Ellis of the USA in the last 16.
