In a much anticipated bout of the day, Rohit Khatri of Delhi took on Sunil from Haryana in the 36 kg weight class of the same age group.

Sunil dominated proceeding from the start never allowing Rohit to settle down. He registered his first win of the tournament with an 8:3 victory on points.

In the same weight division debutants Rahul Yadav of Chandigarh and Alexander of the services team, enthralled the crown with some crafty exchanges. At the end though, it was Alexander who emerged triumphant with his nifty footwork and short jabs. He won 6:9 on points.

The young glove men matched each other punch for punch and after three rounds of intense action the scores were knotted at 9 all. Ultimately it was Rai who was declared the winner on individual judge’s score, a victory he was more than happy with.

In the 36 kg of the 13 year age group, Suraj was all guns blazing against Chetan Singh Panwar of Rajasthan.
