The disappointment at the ranges spilled over to the boxing arena. Jai Bhagwan was outpunched by his Kazakh opponent Gani Zhailauov 8-16, dashing medal hopes from the event.
The Indian led 3-2 in the opening round, but seemed completely off-colour in the second which Zhailauov won by a huge 10-3 margin. Trailing by six points at the end of the second round, Bhagwan tried to put up a fight in the third but the confident Kazakh was ahead 4-2.
