CWG '14: Vijender Singh enters semis

Star boxer Vijender Singh packed a punch while assuring himself of a medal in what proved to be a good outing for Indian pugilists.

In the ring, Vijender outclassed Trinidad and Tobago's Aaron Prince in men's 75kg category. The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist won 3-0 on points in a unanimous decision of the three judges.

The first round was a bit subdued with both the boxers trying to get a measure of each other. Vijender played a bit defensively and Prince attacked more.

In the second round though, Vijender's flurry of punches landed on his opponent who was in difficulty to fend them off. A straight jab and then a right hook punch from Vijender rattled Prince.

The tempo continued in the third round and Vijender won comfortably at the end.
