The two boxers took time to measure up to each other in the first round that finished at 3-3.

The crowd was completely behind the Indian as chants of "jitega jitega India jitega" reverberated at the ExCel Arena.

In the second round, the Indian was slow off the blocks that allowed Atoev to take a two point lead by winning the round 7-5. Atoev's made his flurry of punches count and Vijender also hit back with an upper cut that disbalanced the Uzbek.

The Uzbek was more tactial in the second round that helped him to strecth his lead. Vijender with his left-hook tried to get inside Atoev's defence but luck was simply not on his side.

In the third and the final round, Atoev displayed some lovely defensive skills as Vijender ran out of steam.

Vijender gots his left hooks going but Atoev didn't privde easy opportunities. The Uzbek danced down the ring and scored his points off the counter attack, dashing Vijender's hopes of a second Olympic medal.

I think this poor writer did not see the match, at least should have listened to the commentators. Abbos Atoev was struggling to stand straight in the second round after getting heavy punches from Vijender. Everyone was surprised to see Abbos Atoev leading by 2 points by the end. All expected it to be other way around. Third round Abbos Atoev was hanging on to Vijeder like a bag to save the lead. In a hurry to score more Vijender got exposed and lost more points. The referees are doing very bad. And some writers are very keen thrash own countryment

I have seen this match,Abbos Atoev is just a lucky guy. Abbos Atoev has won just because of judges. probably these judges might have worng buttons. There is no ponit in the game Abbos Atoev has thrown some good punches toVijender Singh. It is bad luck to the indian play Vijender Singh to lose the game. If Vijender Singh is from USA by this time the decision might have been altered.
