Vijender Singh powers his way to pre-quarters
Vijender Singh, who became India's first ever Olympic medal winner in boxing by grabbing the bronze at the Beijing Games four years back, sailed into the pre-quarter final in the men's middleweight (75 kg) boxing competition with a clinical 14-10 win over Danabek Suzhanov of Kazakhstan at the London Olympics on Saturday.

India's strong medal contender, Vijender, seemed confident as he let in some lethal punches to pierce the defence of his rival. The Indian led in each of the rounds, though the Kazakh fighter also landed a few good blows at the Excel arena.

Egged on by the vociferous crowd of expatriate Indians, Vijender Singh opened up a 5-4 lead in the opening round, despite missing a few good scoring chances.

The Indian kept his composure in the next round, notwithstanding Suzhanov's bid to overturn the script and widened the gulf to 9-7. Of special mention was a lightning left hook followed by a right uppercut unleashed by the Indians, both of which proved productive.

Down by two points, Suzhanov tried to go on the offensive in the third round, but Vijender was more than equal to the task as he took a further 5-3 lead to consolidate his position and end the bout on a triumphant note.

Vijender would be up against 24-year old US pugilist Terrel Gausha in the round of last 16 Thursday.
