Kuala Lumpur:

Mohammed Ali Qamar and Ramanand kept alive India's hopes of bagging a gold medal as they reached the finals of the Commonwealth Boxing Championship at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia today. While Qamar reached the final in the light flyweight category, Ramanand made it to the gold medal match in light weight. However, two other Indians Akhil Kumar (flyweight) and Diwakar Prasad (bantom weight) had to be content with bronze medals as they lost their respective semifinal bouts. Heavyweight boxer Johnson and Jitender Kumar (light heavyweight) also assured themselves of at least a bronze medal as they reached the semifinal stage in the championship. (PTI)
