Rohtak, Mar 24 (PTI) Delhi boys impressed at the Youth National Boxing Championship with as many three pugilists registering comprehensive victories on the opening day.
In the light welterweight category, Ankur Chahal outclassed Tamil Nadu’s R. Dhanush by 5-0 margin.
In another contest, Delhi’s Ritik also made his way into the next round after getting the better of Telangana’s Rayees. Ritik got off to a slow start but caught up with his opponent’s speed eventually and peppered him with vicious blows to emerge victorious by unanimous decision.
However, it was curtains for Ritik’s compatriot Shubham (56 kg), who couldn’t cope up with the pace of Uttarakhand’s Pawan Gurung and bowed out.
In the women’s section, Aditi (45-48 kg) also went down to Andhra Pradesh’s G. Ramya in a lop-sided affair as she lost 0-5 to her opponent.
Elsewhere, Tamil Nadu’s Mohan Kumar (49 kg) romped past Orissa’s Manish Jena with a score of 5-0 whereas Telangana’s Navya (60 kg) couldn’t cope from the high-velocity punches from TN’s Ramya as the referee stopped the contest in the first round itself.
However, R. Akash’s (56 kg) bout was halted by the referee in the second round by Chandigarh’s Vivek as he booked his place in the next round Selected Results (Men)
