Until then, SK out \m/

...

Join us for Vikas Krishan's Round of 16 bout on Tuesday early morning, 3.15 am

...

Congratulations to Manoj for getting as far as he did, but perhaps he could have gameplanned a little better today

...

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov takes the unanimous victory, as Manoj Kumar bows out in the Round of 16. 

...

Unfortunate, but Fazliddin Gaibnazarov seemed to be the more potent puncher and a more compact fighter today. It wasn't a boxing masterclass by any stretch of imagination, but not every match is a purist's delight, is it? 

...

The Uzbekistani is content to move away and coast through this round as Manoj wrings his hands beckoning to him to fight. Nope. Nothing doing as the round comes to a close, and along with it, Manoj Kumar's Rio journey as well. 

...

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov with the occasional punch, as does Manoj Kumar, but this is surely too little too late

...

The referee is having to separate them, as Fazliddin Gaibnazarov looks to cruise past Manoj here without taking much damage. He knows he has got this fight, and seems content to avoid too much damage and move away

...

Manoj comes out flying for Round 3, but Fazliddin Gaibnazarov seems content to clip him coming in or hold him and smother him.

...

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov should have taken this round. Manoj Kumar needs a 10-8 round or better in the third to survive this match

...

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov dances around to close the round, as Manoj tries desperately to land some power. But to no avail. Round 2 is in the books.

...

Manoj is trying to close the distance, but the Uzbek has clearly earned his respect with is power

...

Manoj is still on the front foot though, as wades forward with leaping hooks, but Fazliddin Gaibnazarov is catching him with sharp pivot counters as he moves away.

...

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov raps him with a big punch, which give Manoj a standing 8 count!

...

Manoj Kumar comes out swinging! And he's having some success as he's landing with that straight left and the right hook to follow up

...

Round 2 on the way!

...

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov could have edged that Round

...

There is a lot of clinching in this first round, it's hard to score as both men seem to be more intent on landing big shots, rather than accurate ones. Round 1 comes to an end!

...

Manoj looking to retaliate with one-twos from range, but the punches are getting parried. Manoj seems to want to land that looping left hook but Fazliddin Gaibnazarov is just out of the way

...

They circle each other cautiously, as the Uzbek leaps in with wild hooks to Manojs' head

...

Manoj Kumar looks to be fighting orthodox, as Fazliddin Gaibnazarov is fighting in a southpaw stance

...

They are out, and Round 1 is on the way!

...

Fingers crossed as we wait for the boxers to make their entrances

...

Will he progress past the Round of 16 as well?

...

Manoj Kumar is up next in his bout against Fazliddin Gaibnazarov of Uzbekistan
