FRED EVANS SECURES HISTORIC OLYMPIC SILVER MEDAL

St Mellon’s Fred Evans’ took silver at London’s Olympics after losing to the imposing Kazakh Serik Sapiyev 17-9, ending the extra-ordinary run.

Fans at the ExCeL Arena took a shine to the Welsh welterweight throughout the tournament but his exciting flare had faded after a gruelling route to the final. Sapiyev, a double world champion at light-welterweight, overwhelmed Evans who couldn’t get to grips with the Kazakh’s blistering in and out attacks.
