Amit, Gaurav enter semis of German boxing tourney

In bouts held last last night, Amit defeated Germany’s Christopher Goman 5-0, while Gaurav recorded a comprehensive win over Russia’s Vadim Kudriakov by a similar margin. Amit, a silver-medallist from the CWG and a world championships quarterfinalist, has a tough one up next as he will be facing Cuba’s Damian Arce Duarte, who got a bye in the opening round. Gaurav, who claimed a gold in the CWG, will be facing Ireland’s Conor Quinn in his semifinal bout.

However, CWG silver-medallist Manish Kaushik (60kg), bronze-medallist Naman Tanwar (91kg) and former Asian youth silver-medallist Ankush Dahiya (60kg) bowed out after opening-round losses. Manish was defeated 1-4 by Cuba’s Lazaro Jorge Alvarez Estrada, while Naman went down to the Netherland’s Roy Korving in another split verdict. Also going down in a 1-4 decision was Ankush, losing to Russia’s Artur Subkhankulov. Earlier, CWG gold-medallist Vikas Krishan (75kg) had entered the quarterfinals with a facile win over Ireland’s Nevin Michael on Wednesday.
