Rahul had started his campaign with an impressive first round win against Pakistan’s hope Muhammad Bilal. Then in the last 8, he defeated Jahongirmirza TUROBOV of Uzbekistan in a 20 points thriller. Unfortunately, he could not get past Kyrgyz Ulukbek ZHOLDOSHBEKOV in the semi-final and lost by 3-5. He will now play the bronze medal match against Iranian Majid Almas DASTAN.

On the other hand, Deepak Punia started off well in the quarter-finals to out play Mongolian Gankhuyag GANBAATAR 8-2. But failed to live up to expectations against Japan’s Shutaro YAMADA, losing the semi-final 1-4. In the bronze medal bout, he will be up against Iraq’s Issa Abdulsalam Abdulwahhab AL OBAIDI.
