Five Indian pugilists in Asian Boxing quarters

Jul 5 2013, 6:50am CDT | by

Amman, July 5 (IANS) Bantamweight boxer Shiva Thapa (56 kg) bagged a place in the quarterfinals of the ASBC Asian Confederation Boxing Championship here with a scintillating performance.

Amman, July 5 — Bantamweight boxer Shiva Thapa (56 kg) bagged a place in the quarterfinals of the ASBC Asian Confederation Boxing Championship here with a scintillating performance.

Earlier Thursday, Commonwealth Games gold medallist Manoj Kumar (64 kg), National Games bronze medallist Mandeep Jangra (69 kg) and reigning National Champion Sukhdeep Singh (75 kg) also qualified for the last eight.

With Olympian L. Devendro Singh (49 kg) getting a bye in pre-quarterfinals, half of the Indian team now has a chance to make it to the final four of their respective weight divisions.

Thapa came out all charged against his Chinese Taipei opponent Li Lin Yen. Yen was caught off guard and was completely at bay against the young Indian.

Thapa's sharp attacks coupled with some great footwork were too much for him to contain. Shiva went on to make his place in the quarters with a unanimous decision from the judges. In the next round he will square off against Kazakhstan's Kairat Yeraliyev.

But there was disappointment for boxers in other weight divisions.

Olympian and Asian Games silver medallist Dinesh Kumar (91 kg) seemed out of sorts in his quarterfinal encounter against some heavy hitting from Mirzabek Hasanov of Uzbekistan. But Dinesh did well to retaliate with some aggression. He tried hard to overpower the Uzbek boxer with some feisty blows in the final round as well but was unable to make the necessary damage. His campaign came to an end with loss on a split decision.

Gold medal winner at the Limassol Boxing Cup Madan Lal (52 kg) also came up short in his pre-quarterfinal bout against Shakhobiddin Zoirov of Uzbekistan. Zoirov's early pace and domination proved to be the undoing of Lal.

In the lightweight division as well, Olympian and reigning Continental Champion Yunusov Anvar of Tajikistan got the better of Vikash Malik. Super heavyweight boxer Satish Kumar (+91 kg) also suffered a similar fate at the hands of London Olympics bronze medallist Dychko Ivan of Kaxakhstan.

Cultured Brisbane Sir: Re Culture Buff 11 October. One sore point. I could do without the patronising remark about Brisbane and festivals. ‘Even Brisbane!’ Brisbane has had a Musica Nova Festival in which a group of leading world composers came here. Then there were the International Biennial Festivals that were head and shoulders above most Sydney-Melboure festivals; run by the famous Anthony Steel. With the G20 three weeks away, the Spectator Australia is surely ready for so ...

Do Large International Sporting Events Cause Local Used Bike Price to Spike?

Oct 14 2014 9:39pm CDT | Source: Bike Forums

Hi folks Tangentially related question to this forum. Does anyone here know if there is a spike in used bike prices when a large sporting event (e.g. Olympics, Commonwealth Games, etc.) occurs in a given city? Toronto is a hot city for bikes as it is, but it is hosting the 2015 Pan Am Games next summer. Was wondering if people will be more motivated to buy bikes next summer than per usual? Good time to start hoarding bikes now? Does anyone know if the new/used ski ma ...
