For the first time, the continental showpiece will be carried out simultaneously for the youth and junior boxers (men and women).

Seven Indians conquered the ring in the quarter-finals on Monday evening and four of them emerged as winners.

Jaydeep Rawat (71 kg) defeated Mohammed Eissa of the United Arab Emirates in the dominating show of an Indian and outclassed his rival in the second round.

Vanshaj (63.5 kg) won 5-0 against Makhkamov Dovud from Tajikistan, while Daksh Singh (67 kg) defeated Eldar Turdubaev from Kyrgyzstan 4-1.

Suresh Vishvanath (48kg) competed against Kyrgyzstan’s Amantur Zholbborosv and prevailed 5-0.

Victor Saikhom Singh (54 kg) lost 3-2 to Derbek Tilvaldiev from Kyrgyzstan, while Vijay Singh (57 kg) was beaten 3-0 by Tajikistan’s Morodov Abubakr.

Rabindra Singh lost 3-2 to Yoqubov Abdurrahim from Tajikistan.

India’s safe medal count was over 20 on the day of the draw itself as many countries have either skipped or set up smaller squads due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The junior gold medalists will receive $ 6,000 in prize money and the silver and bronze medalists will receive $ 3,000 and $ 1,500, respectively.

Junior champions are awarded $ 4,000 for gold and $ 2,000 and $ 1,000 for silver and bronze medalists, respectively.
