Asian Championships silver-medallist Deepak Singh was among the three Indian boxers to enter the quarterfinals of the Thailand International Tournament in Bangkok today.
Former India Open gold-medallist Manisha Moun and Ashish Kumar were the other Indians to enter the last-eight stage.
Deepak put up a dominating performance in 49 Kilogram category to defeat Morocco’s Said Mortaji 5-0 to be just one step away from a medal. Manisha stormed into the quarterfinal after out-punching Thailand’s Sajeewani Srimali by 5-0 in 57 Kilogram category.
In 75 Kilogram category, Ashish, on the other hand, had to toil a bit before securing a 4-1 verdict over another local favourite Aphisit Kanankhokkhruea
