Jai Bhagwan packs a punch, romps into pre quarterfinals
London, July 29 (ANI): Lightweight boxer (60kg category) Jai Bhagwan punched his way to the pre-quarterfinals stage, beating Andrique Allisop of Seychelles at the Excel arena, here on Sunday.
Bhagwan, 26, playing in his maiden Olympics, dominated the bout from the onset and bagged the opening round 18-8.
Enjoyed better reach because of his height and sound technique, the Indian was equally efficient in defense and took control over the proceedings with identical scorelines of 7-3 in the first two rounds.
Allisop tried his best to get a hold over the bout but Bhagwan was clever enough to deny his opponent any ground.
Leading 14-6 in the third round, the India pugilist adopted a cautious approach but never let go his grip over the bout pocketing the decider with a 4-2 margin.
Bhagwan will now face Gani Zhailauov of Kazakhstan in the pre-quarterfinals. (ANI)
