Fantastic ! just seconds ago our Boxer,Akhil Kumar beat the World Champion,Sergey Vodopyanov in the Round of 16 in the 54 kgs Bantamweight Bout at the Beijing Olympics
The score was tied at 9 all in the four rounds of two minutes each and Akhil Kumar never lead in the bout…Judges ruled him the Winner and the Russian could not believe it…was desolate…was crying….refused to shake hands…it was a phenomenal bout and felt like 1.1 billion Indians were punching the Russian…Akhil Kumar had stated that Dreams are not those that we get when we sleep…but those that don’t let us sleep !
Four Years ago at the Athens Olympics,Akhil Kumar had come in 17th in the Flyweight Category
Come on Akhil Kumar !…now you’re in the round of 8…just one more win and your’e atleast assured of a Bronze !…I know you are Going For Gold ! We could see that Intensity in your Eyes in today’s Bout…Go Get It !
