Earlier, Indian boxer Laishram Devendro Singh made his way into the pre-quartefinals of the 49kg class in emphatic style with the referee stopping contest in the first round at the London Olympics on Tuesday.

The referee stopped the contest just two minutes 24 seconds into the bout against Honduran Bayron Molina Figueroa, who was feeling dizzy after suffering some heavy blows from the Indian.

The 20-year-old from Manipur came out swinging landing some hard blows on his opponent who was left reeling. Devendro attacked with great fervour with Bayron hardly having an answer to the barrage of punches coming his way.

The Indian registered two knocked downs never taking the foot off the gas pedal and finally the bout had to be stopped by the referee.
