Vikas through to quarters in Asian Games

Jakarta: 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 here today.

Vikas, who won a gold in 2010 and a bronze in 2014, prevailed 5-0 after a dominating performance in which his right hooks stood out.

The Indian's powerful punches were mostly met with feeble counters by the Pakistani, who received one standing eight count during the bout and was left quite shaken at the end of it.

The Commonwealth Games gold-medallist Indian also sustained a cut above his left eye during the bout ut did not seem too affected.

He 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.

If Vikas goes on to win a medal at the Games, he would become the first Indian boxer with a hat-trick of podium finishes at the mega-event.
