• Indian boxers advance in Doha boxing tourney


    NEW DELHI: Commonwealth Games silver-medalist L Devendro Singh (49kg) advanced to the finals, while six others entered the semis as Indian boxers shone bright in the Doha International Tournament, a test event for the World Championships scheduled there later this year. Devendro, who got a bye in the opening round, entered the finals after his Qatar rival Al Rafeek Yahea was declared medically unfit. Meanwhile, former Asian gold-medalist Shiva Thapa (56kg), Gaurav Bhiduri (52kg), Mandeep Jangra (69kg), Manish Kumar (60kg), Manoj Kumar (64kg) and Vikas Krishan (75kg) made the semifinals.
