SUNDERLAND heavyweight Warren Baister was knocked out of the World Amateur Championships in Kazakhstan yesterday.

Baister (left) suffered a unanimous defeat to Russia’s Evgeny Tischenko.

The Wearsider got off to a good start, hurting the Russian with a good shot to the ribs and had the greater work rate, but his opponents’ cleaner shots made a bigger impression on the judges.

London flyweight Charlie Edwards had got England off to a good start with a unanimous preliminary round win over Nigeria’s Olayinka Yusuff.
