With the expectant Filipinos watching his fight yesterday, all were suddenly put into somber mood as the best hope of Philippines to medal in this edition of the Olympics lost out a close 17-16 match. Mark Anthony Barriga suffered a defeat after fading in the 3d round against the taller Kazakh player Birzhan Zhakypov in the 49 kgs division. Controversial point deductions marred the match but still we saw how Barriga lost steam in the penultimate round wherein his foe steeped up just enough to beat him.
