This is a disaster for Indian boxing, which now has seen three of its male boxers sent packing home in the very first round itself.
Ashish, today, was overly aggressive and left room for counterattacking punches - something which the Chinese took a huge advantage of.
India now has only two boxers surviving in the Men's section - World number 1 Amit Panghal in Flyweight and Staish Kumar in Heavyweight. Both of them will start their Olympic campaign straight from the Round of 16.
Thank you for joining in. That is all of what we had today from the Indian boxers in Tokyo.
