In Boxing, Asian silver-medallist Kavinder Singh Bisht (57kg) and Sanjeet (91kg) advanced to the pre-quarterfinals with hard-fought wins in the World Men's Championships in Ekaterinburg, Russia yesterday.

While fifth-seeded Bisht edged past China's Chena Zhihao 3-2, Sanjeet defeated Scotland's Scott Forrest in an equally draining contest for a 4-1 verdict in his favour. Now Bisht will square off against Finland's Arslan Khataev in the round of 16.

Earlier, Asian champion Amit Panghal (52kg) and Commonwealth Games silver-medallist Manish Kaushik (63kg) advanced to pre-quarterfinals after winning their respective second-round bouts.

Today, Duryodhan takes on Zeyad Eashash of Jordan in the welter 63-69 kg category and  Satish Kumar (91kg) will start his challenge against Strandja Cup gold medallist Richard Torrez of US.
 
It was curtains for Brijesh Yadav, who bowed out in the second round against Turkey’s Bayram Malkan yesterday.
