Vijender Singh moved a step closer to claim his second Olympic medal after defeating Terrell Gausha of the USA in the pre-quarterfinals of the middleweight (75kg) category. Vijender, a bronze medallist of 2008 Beijing Olympics, defeated his opponent 16-15 in a close contest.


The Indian pugilist took the decisive one point lead in the first round, which ended 4-3 in his favour.

The next two rounds ended in draw, but the first round lead was enough for Vijender to secure a thrilling victory.
