America’s men’s boxing team failed to win an Olympic medal at the 2012 London games for the first time in 100 years. The medal drought was ended by 19-year-old Shakur Stevenson, who lost a heartbreaking split decision to Cuban Robeisy Ramirez in the finals to capture a silver medal.

American Claressa Shields will defend her 2012 Olympic gold medal tomorrow.
