Five-time Asian Championships medallist Shiva Thapa registered a 3-2 win over Mongolia's Byambatsogt Tuguldur to reach the quarterfinals of the ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships in Amman, Jordan on Friday. Thapa (63.5kg) and Tuguldur went toe-to-toe right from the start with their aggressive approach and landed some heavy blows on each other, making it a very close contest.

In the end, it was the distinguished Indian boxer's experience and quick movement that helped him prevail over his

opponent and secure a 3-2 victory by split decision. Thapa will now take on the winner of the bout between Haidara Alasaly and Minsu Choi in the quarterfinals.

Later on Friday, Ananta Chopade (54kg) and Etash Khan (60kg) will be in action against Japan's Tanaka Shogo and Thailand's Khunatip Pudnich respectively in their pre-quarterfinal bouts. Seven Indian women pugilists, including Tokyo Olympic bronze medallist Lovlina Borgohain, will kick off their campaign from the quarter-final stage on Saturday.
