Umakhanov Boxing: Gaurav Solanki, Govind Sahani enter Semis

New Delhi, Aug 2 (UNI) Commonwealth Games gold medallist Gaurav Solanki (56kg) and 2019 India Open Silver medallist Govind Sahani (49kg) have advanced to the semi-finals as the Indian contingent confirmed Two more medals at the Magomed Salam Umakhanov Memorial International Boxing Tournament 2019 in Kaspiysk, Russia.

2019 India Open bronze medallist Gaurav played patiently in the beginning against his Russian opponent Maksim Chernyshev in a highly entertaining bout. In the last round, Gaurav increased the tempo of the game as he landed a flurry of punches to earn a 3-2 split verdict in his favour on Thursday.

GeeBee Boxing silver medallist earlier in the year, Govind Sahani was up against Tajikistan’s Shermukhammad Rustamov in the quarter-final bout. Govind dominated the proceedings from the word go and showed great display of his attacking prowess. He carried on with the onslaught throughout the match and the referee had to stop the contest in the third round. The young pugilist’s attacking acumen was appreciated by all as he earned the first RSC win of the tournament.

However, Ashish Insha (52kg) couldn’t make it to the semis as he lost his bout against Russia’s Islamitdin Alisoltanov 4-1. The match was in the balance till the last round before Ashish conceded a few clear punches in the last one minute which led to his defeat.

2018 India Open Gold medallist Sanjeet had to forego his bout against Russian counterpart Daniel Lutai after suffering a cut on his forehead in the first round of the match.

In all, India are assured of Six medals as Four women and Two men have reached the semi-finals. All the Six Indian semi-finalists will be looking to earn the yellow metal when they enter the ring on Friday.

The 21st edition of this tournament is seeing a participation of 220 boxers hailing from 21 countries. This event will give the Indian boxers a good opportunity to hone their skills and test themselves as they approach the World Championships later in the year.
