It might be time for Ireland’s Michael Conlan to turn pro.
After his loss to Russia’s Vladimir Nikitin in a bantamweight quarterfinal match on Tuesday — Conlan went off — spazzing on the judges during a profanity filled rant.
“AIBA (world amateur boxing association) are cheats,” “They’re all fucking cheats, simple as that. I’ll never box for AIBA again. They’re cheating bastards. They’re paying everybody. I don’t give a fuck that I’m cursing on TV. I was here to win Olympic gold. My dream’s been shattered now.”
