2012 Olympics: Jai Bhagwan storms into second round of 60kg eventLondon: Indian boxer Jai Bhagwan produced a dominating performance to storm into the pre-quarterfinals of the lightweight (60kg) category in the Olympics, on Sunday.

Participating in his maiden Olympics at the age of 26, Bhagwan, was in complete control of the bout from the onset as he thrashed his opponent Andrique Allisop of Seychelles 18-8 in the openeing round at the Excel arena.

Bhagwan enjoyed a better reach because of his height and technically also the Indian was far superior than his Seychelles opponent.

Bhagwan was equally sound in defense as well as attack today and took control over the proceedings with identical scorelines of 7-3 in the first two rounds.

Allisop tried his best to get a hold over the bout but Bhagwan was clever enough to deby his opponent any ground.

Leading 14-6 in the third round, Bhagwan adopted a cautious approach but never let go his grip over the bout pocketing the decider with a 4-2 margin.

Bhagwan will now face Gani Zhailauov of Kazakhstan in the pre-quarterfinals.
