Uzbekistan's Bakhodir Jalolov outclasses India's Satish Kumar in the men's super heavyweight category

Satish knew that getting a win against the World No 1 would require a monumental effort and the Indian Army man succumbed to the pressure ultimately. All the five judges awarded the bout 30-27 to Bakhodir Jalolov. 

The first round was closely contested with both Bakhodir and Satish landing some clean punches on the face. However, Bakhodir had a higher success rate and grabbed the attention of all five judges. 

The second round was a one-sided contest with Bakhodir connecting with his jabs all the time. Satish tried to go on the frontfoot but he let his guard down in the process. 

Satish tried to go for the knockout in the third round but the greater reach of Bakhodir made it impossible for the Indian to connect one punch. At the end of the day, it was an easy decision for the judges. 

Bakhodir looks the clear favorite in the men's super heavyweight category and is head and shoulders above the rest of the pack. It remains to be seen if he can get the gold medal.

Satish and Bakhodir squared off against each other at the 2020 Asia & Oceania Boxing Olympic Qualifiers. There, the Uzbek beat the Indian 5-0 in a one-sided contest. Can Satish turn the tables this time?

09:24 (IST)1 AUG 2021

Satish Kumar received the Arjuna Award in 2018 and also won the bronze medal in the 2014 Asian Games. Most likely, it is going to be the first and last Olympics for the 32-year-old. 

09:22 (IST)1 AUG 2021

Here is a fun fact for you. Satish Kumar initially didn't know what boxing was. He thought it is similar to WWE and wanted to emulate John Cena and the Undertaker. And now, he finds himself one win away from winning a medal for India.

Satish Kumar is the last male boxer in contention at Olympics 2021. If he loses, the men will return empty-handed for the third consecutive time. Vijender Singh's bronze in the 2008 Olympics was the last one from a male boxer. Mary Kom won a bronze in 2012 London Games. And, Lovlina Borgohain has assured herself of at least a bronze in Tokyo 2020. Can Satish Kumar follow in their footsteps and win another medal for India?
