It started Friday morning when the bantamweight Gary Russell Jr., also a medal favorite, collapsed in a desperate final effort to make weight and was disqualified. It continued Sunday and Monday, when Javier Molina and Sadam Ali were defeated handily in their Olympic debuts. And it reached its peak Tuesday when Warren, who fell behind by a point with about 55 seconds remaining, presumed he was winning until the final 15 seconds.
