Silver for beaten Evans
Fred Evans had to settle for an Olympic silver medal after losing a wide 17-9 decision to Serik Sapiyev in their men's welterweight final.
But for the Cardiff 21-year-old, who has thrilled the ExCeL crowds since his ferocious first round win over Algeria's Ilyas Abbadi, there was no shame in falling just short.
Kazakhstan's Sapiyev, a former two-time world champion, was simply too classy for Evans, who was unable to find a way through his opponent's flitting jabs to land his shots, and who was fortunate to be only five points down at the half-way stage.
Evans' hard road to the final, which also included an enthralling single point semi-final win over Ukraine's world champion and world number one Taras Shelestyuk, caught up with him as the Kazakh skated away to win.
Evans told BBC1: "I've had four hard fights and I've got no excuses. He was sharper on the day and I didn't stick to my plan quite as I should have.
"I beat the Ukrainian world champion, the number one in the world. Obviously I'm still young, I'm only 21 - I'm one of the youngest seniors here - so I've done well and I'm over the moon with getting to the final."
