AIBA World champion Michael Conlan is no longer the favourite for Olympic gold in Rio next month.

The Belfast bantamweight has seen his odds drift with Irish bookmaking giant Paddy Power.

At one stage, Conlan was a 6/4 favourite for top prize in Brazil, but now finds himself as third favourite at 3/1.

Edging past Conlan into top spot with the bookies are U.S. hotshot Shakur Stevenson and  Cuban 2012 flyweight gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez at 11/4.

Behind Conlan is Russian Vladimir Nikitin at 9/1.
