TOKYO (AP) Professional boxers are getting knocked out of the Olympics early and often for the second straight Games.

IBF super featherweight champion Maiva Hamadouche of France lost her opening bout of the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday night, dropping a split decision to 40-year-old former silver medalist Mira Potkonen of Finland.

A few hours earlier, Poland's Karolina Koszewska - a former light middleweight international champion - was emphatically sent home from the women's welterweight tournament by Turkey's Busenaz Surmeneli.
