Chasing a third successive Asian Games medal, Indian boxer Vikas Krishan (75kg) made a strong start, out-punching Pakistan's Tanveer Ahmed in his pre-quarterfinal bout in Jakarta today. Vikas, who won a gold in 2010 and a bronze in 2014, prevailed 5-0 after a dominating performance. Vikas also sustained a cut above his left eye during the bout but didn't seem too affected. Here's more.
Boxer Vikas Krishan's powerful punches were mostly met with feeble counters by Pakistan's Ahmed, who received a standing eight count during the bout and was left quite shaken at the end of it. Vikas will be up against China's Tuoheta Erbieke Tanglatihan in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. Tanglatihan defeated Turkmenistan's Nursahet Pazzyyev in his last 16 stage bout.
