BOUT 3: Dennis James Vs Ashish

A Super Welter Weight Contest, which was once again decided in the opening seconds of the 1st Round. 19 Year old Dannis James with his record of 2 Wins and 1 loss in his previous 3 outings was always the favourite in this contest. As expected, Dannis started aggressively from the 1st bell and charged at Ashish, who took a couple of lusty hooks to the chin. Ashish didn’t want to continue any further and the Referee Ajay Salvi obliged.

Dennis James won by TKO in the 1st Round.

BOUT 4: B Lenin Vs Vinoth Kumar

The 4th Fight of the evening was a Super Welter weight contest between B Lenin in the Rd corner and Vinoth Kumar in the Blue corner. Both boxers were making their Professional Boxing Debuts. Lenin looked composed with some jabs that went through Vinoth’s defences in the early seconds of the 1st Round. However, Vinoth was able to land some of his own hooks by the 2nd minute which rattled Lenin. He started turning his back to the wild flurry of punches being thrown by Vinoth. The Referee Ajay Salvi rightly called the contest to a close and awared the fight to Vinoth.

Vinoth kumar won by TKO in the 1st Round.

BOUT 5: Manodeepan Vs Ranjith Kumar

The 5th fight of the evening in the Heavy Weight category between 2 Debut Boxers Manodeepan and Ranjith Kumar. Manodeepan in the Blue corner started the fight slow and composed waiting to see Ranjith’s resolve. He landed a few telling jabs while keeping Ranjith at a distance. Ranjith’s style of keeping his head down while attempting to throw wild swings was clearly predictable and Manodeepan took good advantage of timing his punches to perfection.

By the start of the 2nd Round Manodeepan was clearly more aggressive to bring the fight to an end. Some strong Jabs and combinations to the body coupled with a upper cut to the face floored Ranjith. Referee Ajay Salvi gave the mandatory count for the knockdown and called the fight in favour of Manodeepan.

Manodeepan Won by TKO in the 2nd Round.

BOUT 6: S Karuna Vs Vishnu

The 6th fight of the evening in the Super Welter weight category between 2 debutante’s S Karuna in the Red corner Vs Vishnu in the Blue corner. The fight started with Karuna being the early aggressor and landing some good combination punches on Vishnu.

Vishnu recovered quickly from the early onslaught and kept his defences tight. After the initial fire had died down, Vishnu started connecting his own hooks and cuts to Karuna’s Body and Face. A set of combinations punches in the 2nd minute were enough for Referee Ajay Salvi to call the fight in favour of Vishnu.

Vishnu won by TKO in 1st Round

BOUT 7 : Rohan Yadav Vs Sediqui Wahedulla

Round 1 was a cagey affair with both boxers attempting to figure each other’s strategy. Rohan had a few clear punches and combinations to win the round

Round 2 to 6 were dominated largely by Rohan Yadav. Sediqui did have some moments of his own, but Rohan was faster and more technically accomplished. Rohan was visibly tired by the 6th round and allowed Sediqui an opportunity to land some blows. However, all 3 judges were Unanimous in their decision to award the fight in favour of Rohan.
