India’s Abhishek Yadav produced a dominating performance to enter the semifinals at the Elorda Cup 2024 after beating local boxer Rakhat Seitzhan in Astana, Kazakhstan on Wednesday.

Abhishek looked in great touch throughout the bout as he outperformed the home favourite Seitzhan with a comprehensive 5-0 victory in the men’s 67kg quarterfinals.

However, it was a disappointing day for Pawan Bartwal (54kg), Kavinder Singh Bisht (57kg) and two other Indians who suffered losses in their respective quarte-finals.

While Pawan went down fighting 1-4 against Kabdeshov Timur of Kazakhstan, Kavinder lost to Uzbekistan’s Mirazbek Mirzahalilov with a knockout decision.

Varinder Singh (60kg) and Hitesh (71kg) conceded identical 0-5 losses against Kazakhstan’s Temirzhanov Serik and Aslanbek Shymbergenov respectively.

Late on Tuesday, Manisha (60kg) and Monika (81+ kg) confirmed two more medals for India after entering the semi-finals.

Along with Manisha and Monika, Minakshi (48kg), Anamika (50kg), Nikhat Zareen (52kg), Sonu (63kg), Manju Bamboriya (66kg) and Shalakha Singh Sansanwal (70kg) will be in action in the semifinals on Thursday.

The finals will be played on Saturday.
