Moroccan heavyweight boxer Youness Baalla tried to chunk David Nyika’s ear throughout his defeat to the New Zealander on the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old was subsequently disqualified for unsportsmanlike behaviour, though he was already out of the Games anyway following his unanimous-points loss within the round-of-16 bout.

A Tokyo 2020 assertion known as Baalla’s actions “intolerable”, saying that he “very clearly intended to bite the ear/face of his opponent in the third round of the bout”.

Footage reveals Baalla attempting to chunk Nyika’s proper ear as the 2 boxers maintain one another.

Nyika, a two-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist who has already fought as an expert, stated: “He didn’t get a full mouthful.

“Luckily he had his mouthguard in and I used to be a bit sweaty.

“I was bitten on the chest at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games (2018), but come on man, this is the Olympics.”
