Irish light-welterweight Ray Moylette will not compete at this year's Olympic Games after he fell at the first hurdle at the final qualifying tournament in Venezuela.

The Mayo native knew that two wins at the event would make him the ninth Irish boxer to qualify for the games.

It wasn't to be however as he went down on a unanimous decision to Armenia's Hovhannes Backrov.
