Ben Whittaker earned a silver medal but was out-foxed by the wily Cuban Arlen Lopez in the Olympic light-heavyweight final on Wednesday morning.Whittaker's is the second silver medal for Team GB's boxers - Pat McCormack earned the same in the welterweight division - among a record six medals that will be brought home from Tokyo 2020.But Whittaker's bid for GB's first boxing gold of the Games was thwarted by Lopez, who became a back-to-back Olympic champion after also winning at Rio 2016.Lopez won a split decision to leave Whittaker's head in his hands.
Whittaker has emerged as one of the British stars in Tokyo after impressing with both his talent in the ring and his chirpy personality in the post-bout interviews.He drew attention after saying he wants to become the mayor of his home town of Wolverhampton after the Games, although his primary target was getting an Olympic medal around his neck rather than the mayoral chains.
The devastation of the defeat by Lopez was evident. Whittaker was crying on the podium after receiving his medal, before stuffing the silver into his pocket."You don't win silver, you lose gold. I'm very disappointed - I feel like a failure," he said.
"You're in this game to win gold. I don't want to feel like this again. I'm going to put this to the back of my mind. I'll come back, trust me."The Briton exuded confidence as he danced his way into the ring and started quickly, trying to upset the rhythm of the Cuban southpaw with his quick jab.
But Lopez stepped forward more as the first round progressed, leading to him winning the opener on all of the judges' scorecards.Whittaker was told by his corner to go for his shots in the second round, but landed little on the classy Cuban until a late left hook gave him hope.
But he still trailed on four of the five cards and needed a stoppage in the final round to win gold.That did not not look like coming and although Whittaker edged the round it was not enough as Lopez added the title to the middleweight gold he won at Rio 2016.
