ATHENS, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Cameroon's welterweight Willy Bertrand Tankeu was disqualified from the Olympic boxing competition after failing to weigh within the limits of his category, organisers said on Sunday.

Tankeu became the third boxer to be dismissed from the tournament, which started on Saturday.

Ukrainian light-welterweight Ihor Pashchuk was disqualified on Friday after failing a medical examination. Kenya's David Munyasia was thrown out of the Games on Tuesday after testing positive for a recreational drug.

Munyasa has filed an appeal against the decision with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). A decision was expected on Sunday.
