The farce against Chamizo is complete: the Italian fight He had won his match that was worth the Olympic pass, before that strange challenge requested after the time has expired by the athlete who is the owner of the house, he referees they denied incredibly the points from the victory in Chamizo. Now the Federation has agreed with him, but has not given him back the qualification for the Olympics that he had earned on the mat.
