Vijender Kumar ensures another medal for India

India’s Vijender Kumar beat Carlos Gongora of Ecuador 9-4 in the quarter-finals of the 75kg middleweight category of the boxing event on Wednesday to guarantee India another medal at the Beijing Olympics.

Vijender had a good start, winning the opening round 2-0. He also pocketed the second round 2-1. The third also went his way 3-2 and so did the fourth 2-1.

Vijender stormed into the last eight after overwhelming Angkhan Chomphuphuang of Thailand 13-3 in a lop-sided pre-quarter-final bout on Saturday night.
