Sachin strikes gold at Youth World Boxing Championships

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

World Junior bronze-medallist Sachin Singh (49kg) today became only the third Indian boxer ever to strike gold at the AIBA Youth World Championships with a stunning unanimous victory over Cuban national champion Jorge Grinan in the summit clash at St Peterburg, Russia.

The 16-year-old outpunched his more fancied rival 5-0 to record a rare Indian triumph over a Cuban boxer.



The lanky teen, who once again put his powerful left jab to good use, displayed brilliant ringcraft against his shorter and often clueless opponent.

thus finished the tournament with one gold and a bronze, a marked improvement from the solitary bronze won in the 2014 edition. Naman Tanwar (91kg) had settled for a bronze after losing in the semifinal yesterday.

Sachin joined Thokchom Nanao Singh and Vikas Krishan in the Indian youth world championships gold club. While Nanao had finished on top in the 2008 edition in the now phased out 48kg category, Vikas had brought home the welterweight gold in 2010.

Sachin, who had been in peerless form through the tournament, was not the least bit intimidated by the higher-rated Cuban.

With his height and reach giving Sachin a distinct advantage, the Indian controlled the bout with flawless footwork.

Infact his strategy of swaying back and forcing Grinan to lunge forward worked brilliantly as the Cuban found it difficult to keep his balance.

Grinan tumbled twice, quite awkwardly, during the bout.
