Manish overpowered Calum French of England by a unanimous 5:0 verdict.
Manish was seemed solid right from the start but soon, his opponent started counter-attacking. At one stage, the duo threw everything at each other and in the process Kaushik fought without a guard up. But at the end, it was the Indian boxer who proved superior and assured another medal for India.
Gaurav came up with an impressive performance against three-time Oceania champion Charles Keama of Papua New Guinea to claim a well-deserved, unanimous 5:0 verdict in the quarter-finals of the men's flyweight (52 kilogram) category.
The duo thus confirmed another couple of medals to the Indian tally as every boxer in the last-four stage is assured of a spot on the podium.
Up against the vastly more experienced Keama, Gaurav delivered a composed, technically superior performance.
Gaurav landed more scoring punches in a frenetic opening period, thus taking the early advantage.
The second round followed a similar script with Gaurav penetrating Keama's defence with powerful jabs on several occassions.
Keama came out swinging in the third and last period in an effort to reduce the gap, but Gaurav did well to retaliate in an effective manner and take a well-deserved victory.
Later, Vikas coasted to an easy win over Muziyo.
The African adopted an attacking approach right from the start and Vikas responded by staying just outside his reach and using a higher guard than usual.
The 2014 Asian Games bronze medallist fought well on the counter, regularly finding the gaps and it did not come as a surprise when all the five judges ruled in his favour.
