Shiva Thapa, Sumit Sangwan bag silver medals at 2017 Asian Boxing Championship

Indian Boxers Shiva Thapa (60 kg) and Sumit Sangwan (91 kg) bagged silver medals at the Asian Boxing Championships.

The 23-year-old-Thapa had to settle for a silver medal after an injury forced him to forfeit his match to second seed Elnur Abduraimov.

Thapa lost in a split verdict after a head butt from his opponent which resulted in a cut in the final few seconds of the first round.

Shiva had made it to the finals after defeating Mongolia’s Otgondalai Dorjnyambuu, the Olympic bronze medallist from the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Sumit, who was up against Kazakhstan’s Vassiliy Levit, lost in a unanimous verdict.

Levit, who took silver at the Rio Olympics last year, dominated the bout from the start and took a comfortable 5-0 win.
