But there was disappointment for Commonwealth Games gold medallist Manoj Kumar (64kg) in the semi-finals of the light welter weight division. Pitted against London Olympics bronze medallist Uranchimegiin Monkh-Erdene of Mongolia, Kumar gave his opponent a run for his money. But in the end the 26-year-old came up short against the Mongolian in what was a fight to the finish. He will have to be content with a bronze medal performance from the tournament.
National Coach GS Sandhu was extremely pleased with the performance of all the Indian boxers in the tournament . Hearty Congratulations to all of them and the players were also associated with Olympic Gold Quest which is one of the leading Sponsor for Indian Athletes
