Indian boxer Deepak Kumar produced a scintillating performance to cause a major upset at the 72nd Strandja Memorial Tournament in Sofia, Bulgaria as he outpunched the reigning Olympic champion Uzbekistan's Shakhobidin Zoirov in the men's 52kg semi-final bout today.

Showing great composure in the ring, the Asian Championship silver medallist Deepak produced one the best performances of his career to clinch a thumping 4-1 win against more fancied Zoirov, who had earlier won the 2019 World Championship title beating star Indian boxer Amit Panghal.
