New Delhi:

Twenty-seven-year-old Akhil Kumar, whose win over Russian world champion Sergey Vodopyanov came on India's Independence Day, will face Moldova's Veaceslav Gojan this evening (5 pm IST) for a place in the last four in the 54 kg bantam weight category.

Akhil, who had outboxed 2005 world silver medallist Ali Hallab of France in the first round, seems India's best bet.

Wish him good luck...
