Tokyo Olympics: Frazer Clarke takes home bronze for Team GB despite loss to Bakhodir Jalolov

Agony for Frazer Clarke as his Olympic semi-final super-heavyweight fight with Uzbekistan’s No 1 seed Bakhodir Jalolov is stopped due to a nasty cut over his right eye… but Team GB star will still take home bronze!

Frazer Clarke will take bronze after losing his super-heavyweight semi-final against Uzbekistan brute Bakhodir Jalolov. 

The Burton-on-Trent fighter, 29, bravely stepped into the ring against the heavy favourite and delivered a huge right hand in the second – practically the first glove landed on the 27-year-old – during the Games so far. 

At the start of the third he needed treatment for the cut over the right eye and returned to the battle needing a miracle. 

But another shot from Jalolov reopened the wound, obtained during his quarter-final win, and the referee called time on the clash.
