Adam Nolan bowed out of the AIBA World Elite Men’s Championships at the last-64 stage after losing a 2-1 split decision to France’s Souleymane Cissokho in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

The Bray BC welterweight was awarded all three rounds by the Brazilian judge, who scored it 10-9 across the board for the Wexford southpaw.

But the Azerbaijani and Danish judges leaned in favour of Cissokho (9-10,10-9,9-10) and (10-9,9-10,9-10).
