In the heavy-weight category, Elly Ajowi was floored by Scott Forrest from Scotland.

The judges - Sid Mokretari (Algeria), Jonathan Wolper (USA), Arnagirenthan Vadivel (Singapore), Mark Williams (Wales) and Atsuo Fujikasu (Japan) - were unanimous that the Scotsman outpointed Ajowi 30-26, 30-27, 30-26, 30-27 and 30-26.
