Anil Mehta, meanwhile, managed to push his Slovakian opponent Lukas Mandinec to a decision but could only secure a 27-30 in the Judge’s scorecard which resulted in his loss.

Janu Kondh also went the distance with his opponent from the Philippines but had a similar faith to that of Anil as he got 27-30 in the scorecard. Chandra Kanta Debbarma got a decision win over Deeptangshu Baidya in the first round but could not compete in the second round due to a leg injury that he picked up. Zakaria Eljamaria of UAE, who was supposed to face Debbarma in the second round was subsequently given a walkover.

Elsewhere, Anwitha Alva suffered a referee stoppage loss due to body injury against Jenelyn Olsim but was awarded the Bronze Medal in the category.
