Thank you for joining us today. We'll be back with more live coverage of Vikas Krishan on Saturday at 3.45am IST when he fights in the round of 16

...

Vikas Krishan pulls off a solid victory over a solid fighter. And he puts India on the map in boxing at Rio 2016. The judges scored it 29-28 throughout the board

...

The Winner by Unanimous Decision is VIKAS KRISHAN!

...

We await the decision by the judges, fingers crossed!

...

The clock runs out on an uneventful third round, but Vikas Krishan may have edged this fight. Just. But he may have just done enough

...

Close round till now, hard to call

...

The American seems to be working more here but Vikas is maintaining distance and looks to be coasting. He pivots and goes to the body as Conwell tries to close the distance

...

Both fighters seem cautious as the third round starts. Conwell is trying to close the distance with a jab and following with a straight right but Vikas has displayed good head movement

...

For my money, its 1-1 as we head into the 3rd and final round

...

Vikas looks good in this round, and is getting his uppercut to land. Conwell is ducking into that. Vikas wasn't throwing it in the first round and started in the second. Round 2 in the books. Looks like Vikas took that one!

...

Better so far by Vikas as he's finding Conwell more with the left uppercut. Vikas also goes to the body here.

...

Vikas seems quicker here, and is landing a check right hook as he pivots away just as Conwell comes in. Big uppercut by Vikas! He's landed that twice now into the ducking Conwell

...

Conwell seems quicker to the draw here, but Vikas seems to be more willing to trade

...

Conwell opens with a 1-2 that is blocked

...

Vikas has to come out strong in Round 2

...

Vikas seems light on his feet but neither man has really grabbed this round yet. They're still trying to find a way through the other's defences. They clinch to end the round, but perhaps Conwell edges that through slightly superior dirty boxing in the clinch

...

VIkas Krishan seems to be fluid on his feet, but Conwell seems to be good with bobbing out of the centre line and he's trying for a short left hook that's missing narrowly for now

...

Krishan the southpaw against the orthodox Conwell. They try to establish range but neither man has yet to land a telling shot

...

And Round 1 starts!

...

Charles Conwell is a 2-time National Youth Champion. VIkas has his hands full. Looks like the crowd is dead against Conwell here, as a chorus of boos greet his introduction.

...

And Vikas Krishan fights next, against Charles Conwell!

...

And expectedly, Hossam takes it. Easy fight for him in reality , as he moves on to the next round

...

The 3rd Round times out as Hossam raises his hand. Don't think there is much of a question here about who won this fight.

...

Hossam is mixing up his body strikes well with the punches to the head, and just manages to move away when Merven Clair attempts to return fire. Good boxing by the Egyptian

...

Every time Clair attempts to throw a flurry of punches, Hossam manages to close the distance and holds on to him. Good way to smother the opponent's attacking intent
