Conlan defeat leads to Irish fury

Michael Conlan's coach and father John says he will tell his son to "get away" from amateur boxing after his controversial Olympic quarter-final defeat on Tuesday.

London 2012 medallist Conlan, Ireland's last remaining boxing medal hope in Rio, lost by unanimous decision to Russia's Vladimir Nikitin in a hugely contentious verdict.

"He won the fight clearly. He'll never box amateur again if I have anything to do with it," said John Conlan, who was in the Belfast man's corner during Tuesday's fight.
