The former youth champion advanced to the pre-quarterfinals of the bantamweight division by a unanimous 5-0 decision. Twenty-three-year-old Sachin took advantage of his tall stature and easily won the first round by landing powerful punches. Sachin’s aggressive attitude continued in the second round. His defense was also strong.

After two rounds, Sachin did not hold back his punches in the final three minutes. He continued pummelling the hapless Maldovian with a range of punches, including the upper cut, to claim a comprehensive win. Sachin will face 2021 World Championships silver medallist Makhmud Sabyrkhan for a place in the quarterfinals.

Earlier, Indian boxer Deepak Bhoria made a strong performance on Sunday by defeating Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist Saken Bibossinov of Kazakhstan to make it to the pre-quarterfinals of the World Championships. Deepak, who was included in the team in place of World Championship silver medalist Amit Panghal, went on the attack in the last three minutes to win the match.

Meanwhile, two-time Commonwealth Games medalist Mohammad Hussamuddin (57kg) outclassed Savvin Eduard of Russia 5-0 to book his place in the quarterfinals. He will face Umid Rustamov of Azerbaijan in the next round. While Naveen, who defeated 2021 World Championships bronze medallist Enmanuel Reyes, completely lost to the Spaniard. He got a standing count in the very first round. After that, he never quite looked menacing or even comfortable in the ring as he struggled to connect his punches.
