Rest of our 5 semi finals will be in the evening session.
We could only get 1 win out 5 SF in evening session- Simranjeet Kaur in womens lightweight.

So, overall i would consider on mens side - Amit , Vikas and Gaurav Solanki as medal prospects. Amit did not have a great tournament here but he will mostly be the only Indian to be seeded in top 4. So, if he fights like he did at WC, he has a chance. Vikas has been very good here coming back from pros and he has the experience of 2 olympiad behind him. Gaurav Solanki has not even qualified here but had a bad draw against top ranked boxer from Uzbekistan. He lost in a close split decision which i thought could have gone either way. The Uzbek boxer has gone out to beat everyone else easily.

On women's side, Simranjeet, Marykom and Lovelina are prospects.

So, as Jay said we can look at 2 medals which can come down to 1 ( will be disappointed with 0 ). We need a lot of luck in draw and decisions to get 3.

Manish Kaushik qualfies as fight best boxer in his category by winning the play off against an Australian whom he had lost to in CWG final.

So, that it for here. We get a total of 9 quotas ( 5 men and 4 women). It will be our highest ever respresentation in boxing in olympics.

4 more possible places left - 3 in men and 1 in women. I think we should get 1 each in men and women in world qualifing competition. Anything more will be bounus.

A decent summary of the Asian qualifiers.

Apparently, Vikas Krishan failed to make weight for the final.

Vikas had suffered a minor cut near the eyebrow in the SF which he won. I think he withdrew from the final due to that. It was clear after the SF that he will withdraw from the final as nothing much was at stake. Even if he had won the final, he would have not have got into top 4 seedings at Tokyo.

So, looks like Amit Panghal will be the only Indian seeded for Tokyo which will mean a relatively easier draw.

A question

Post by HSH »

Has any Indian female boxer ever had a 1 punch knockout - क्या किसी भारतीय महिला मुक्केबाज ने कभी 1 पंच नॉक आउट मारा है?

(There is now a thread started by HSH on this - so keep discussion there. Can merge that thread here, later... Mod, Jay)

IOC decided to scap the final olympic qualifier for boxing for Tokyo Olympics which were to be held in June. Instead of that the quotas which were to be given at that event will go to the highest ranked boxer in each region. That has hit us bad as we cannot get any more quotas for boxing now.

Blow to Indian boxers as final Tokyo Olympics qualifier is scrapped

Biggest miss would be Gaurav Solanki in mens 57 kgs. He lost in a split decision against eventual gold medalist and world champion from Uzbekistan in the Asian qualfier last year but unfortunately he is not the highest ranked Asian not qualfied so he missed out. Could be an outside medal hope gone for us. :-(
