India signed off a creditable fourth among the record 28 countries which participated in the Asian Boxing Championships after grabbing one silver and three bronze medals on the whole.

India logged 16 points for their performance in the event to finish behind table-toppers Kazakhstan (42 points), Uzbekistan (38 points) and hosts Thailand (17 points) respectively.

Vikas Krishan (75kg) won the lone silver, while the three bronze medals came through L Devendro Singh (49kg), Shiva Thapa (56kg) and Satish Kumar (+91kg).
