6 Men & 4 women advanced into the semifinals, confirming a total of 10 medals for India

Olympic-bound Indian boxers Satish Kumar (+91kg) and Ashish Kumar (75kg) entered the semi-finals of the 35th Boxam International Tournament in Castellon, Spain with impressive victories.

Sumit Sangwan (81kg) also advanced to the last four after a 4-1 triumph over Mohor El Ziad of Belgium.

Satish, the first super heavyweight from the country to qualify for the Olympics, defeated Denmark’s Givskov Nielsen 5-0 in his last-eight bout late on Thursday.

Asian silver-winner Ashish, on the other hand, got the better of Italy’s Remo Salvatti in a split 4-1 verdict to make the medal rounds.

With this the Indian representation in the semi-finals touched 10 – six men and four women.

Earlier on Thursday, Mohammed Hussamuddin (57kg) and the Tokyo-bound duo of Manish Kaushik (63kg) and Vikas Krishan (69kg) advanced to the medal rounds.

However, world number one Amit Panghal (52kg) bowed out with a stunning loss to European Games gold-medallist Gabriel Escobar.

Among the women, six-time world champion M C Mary Kom (51kg), Asian champion Pooja Rani (75kg), Simranjit Kaur (60kg) and debutant Jasmine (57kg) are in the last-four stage.

Boxers from 17 countries, including Russia, USA, Italy, and Kazakhstan are participating in the event.
