Simranjit Kaur gets outclassed by Thailand's Sudaporn Seesondee

India's Simranjit Kaur's maiden Olympics campaign ended shortly as she lost emphatically to Thailand's Sudaporn Seesondee in the women's lightweight category. All five judges awarded the bout to Thailand, with Simranjit failing to get a 10 in either of the three rounds. 

Both boxers started the first round cautiously but judges were impressed by Sudaporn and awarded the round to her. Simranjit came out with all guns blazing in the second round, but she let her guard down in the process. Sudaporn made the most of it and got a 10-9 decision from all the judges once again. In the third round, Simranjit tried to go for the knockout but she failed to connect with either of her uppercuts. 

At the end of the day, it was Sudaporn's footwork and swift movements from her leading hand that saw her get the win. She will now face Great Britain's Caroline Dubois in the quarter-finals.
