Indian boxer Rohit Tokas (67 kg) has qualified for the quarter-finals of the men’s welterweight at the Commonwealth Games on Tuesday. The 29-year-old boxer from Delhi recorded a 5-0 victory over Alfred Kotey from Ghana. Tokas played most of the fight with an open guard, spending the first round defending while Kotey took on the role of aggressor. While Kotey landed more punches than Tokas, they were not clean and the Indian defended well to take a 4-1 win.

Tokas unleashed himself in the final three minutes when he landed a combination of punches on his opponent. Kotey had no response to the Indian’s attack as all five judges ruled in favor of the latter.
