Shiva Thapa in the hunt for Olympic berth

Losing the semi-final to Uzbekistan’s Murodjan Akhmadaliev makes the Indian youngster’s Olympic journey a bit longer. Shiva will now fight a box-off on the 15th for a final shot at Olympic qualification at the World Championships.

Two spots have been reserved for the finalists of the weight category while a third position will be up for grabs and will be determined through a box off between the losing semi-finalists.

The Indian’s hopes of qualifying for the finals have once again been dashed by the Uzbek. He defeated Shiva in the semis of the Asian Championships last month. Shiva lost this bout 2-1 in an even-contest.

The Indian was unlucky in the opening round of the bout, in spite of landing clean hooks on his opponent the judges ruled in favour of the Asian Championships silver medallist. The second round went clean for the Uzbek. Shiva, cornered in the final round, looked for a knock-out going all-out , but could only manage to win the round.

Olympic hopes for Shiva Thapa

“It’s a part of the game, I gave it my all but it was not my day. I still have a good chance of making the Olympics so I am looking forward to that,” Shiva said after his bout.

He will next face Dzmitry Asanau in the box-off on the 15th, as the Belarussian lost to third seed Irishman Michael Conlan in his semi-final bout.
