49 kg category: Despite having to fight consecutive bouts against Pankaj Saini and Amandeep Singh,Nanao Singh seems to have done enough to take both decisions.

52 kg: After an average first round,former national champion Madan Lal benefits from his opponent Gaurav Bidhuri’s poor hitting accuracy to take the bout.

56 kg: Shiva Thapa looks a bit out of sorts against Durga Prasad but benefits after his opponent is given two penalties for holding and pushing.

60 kg: Defending national champion Vikas Malik takes his time to find his range against Anil Kumar but the latter runs out of steam in the second and third round.

64kg: Commonwealth Gold medalist Manoj Kumar (pic above) emerges the clear winner after completely dominating his bout against Narender Kumar. Narender came forward initially but slowed down after taking some big body shots.

69kg: Asian Championship silver medalist Mandeep Jangra dances circles around a flatfooted Dilbagh Singh without landing too much but then found success after waiting for his opponent to come to him instead.

75kg: The bout and the score ends up being closer than what Vijender Singh would have wanted with the young Sukhdeep showing strong defensive skills.

81kg: Olympian Sumit Sangwan makes a successful return after surgery on his hand with a clinical win over Rahul Passi.

91kg: This one could have gone either way as Dinesh Kumar and Manpreet Singh,both Asian Games silver medalists,trade big shots throughout the bout. Point penalty to Dinesh for a low blow in round two doesn’t help as he goes down.

91kg-plus: After an unfit Paramjit Samota loses in Tuesday’s trials,defending National champion Satish takes an easy win over Praveen Kumar.
