Boxer Lakra crashes out

August 11, 2008

AL Lakra paid the price of being too cautious as he crashed out of the Beijing Olympics' boxing competition after losing 5-9 to Athens Games bronze medallist Bahodirjon Sultanov in the opening round of the featherweight category.

  • Lakra, the only Indian boxer in action today, evaded too much and attacked too little against an aggressive Sultanov in the low-scoring bout.

    The first round had the Indian trailing 1-2 and the margin remained the same at the end of the second round with Lakra 3-4 behind.
