A Moroccan boxer tries to "bite" his opponent at the Tokyo Olympics

 Moroccan boxer Younes Baala tried to "bite" his New Zealand competitor, David Nikia, during their confrontation in the heavyweight competitions at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The camera lenses monitored the Moroccan boxer's attempt to "bite" his opponent, David Nikia, but the latter excelled at the end of the match and won to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition.

The 22-year-old Moroccan easily lost the first two rounds against the New Zealand boxer, forcing Younes to try to "bite" his opponent, as those attempts did not help him in the end to win the match.

The New Zealand player dominated the match from the start, eventually winning 5-0, to qualify for the quarter-finals, but he was surprised that the referee did not see the incident.
