Stomach flu sidelines Olympic boxer

Alongside losing his shot at a light welterweight Olympic medal, Mexico’s Raul Curiel is contending with a nasty stomach bug to boot. 

The Mexican Olympic Comission tweeted out that Curiel would be unable to compete today due to a bout of gastroenteritis, better known as stomach flu.

 
Curiel was set to compete against China’s Hu Qianxun this morning. Qianxun was declared the winner via walkover due to Curiel’s inability to compete.
