TASHKENT: India’s Mohammad Hussamuddin (57kg) continued his good run with another dominant performance as he progressed to the pre-quarterfinals of the IBA Men’s World Boxing Championships here on Friday. In the Round-of-32 bout, Hussamuddin defeated China’s Lyu Ping 5-0. After winning the first round unanimously, the southpaw upped the ante in the next and took the initiative to land heavy blows on his opponent while dodging Lyu’s punches.
