London 2012: Callum Smith fails to qualify for Team GB boxing squad

Callum Smith

Callum Smith has failed in his bid to earn a place in the Team GB male boxing squad for the 2012 Olympics.

The light-heavyweight, 21, lost in the semi-finals of the final qualifying tournament in Turkey on Friday.

The fighter who defeated him, Azerbaijan's Vatan Huseynli, was himself beaten 18-12 by Turkish boxer Bahram Muzaffer in the 81kg final on Saturday, meaning Smith misses out.

Team GB's squad is now complete with seven fighters out of a possible 10.

Middleweight Anthony Ogogo and lightweight Josh Taylor qualified in Trabzon, joining Andrew Selby, Luke Campbell, Thomas Stalker, Fred Evans and Anthony Joshua, who had already secured their places in London.

Three female boxers - Nicola Adams, Natasha Jonas and Savannah Marshall - will also get the chance to qualify for the Games via the World Championships in China next month.
