Ace Indian boxer Vikas Krishan settles for a Bronze at the Asian Games 2018 in the Men’s 75kg Boxing after he was unfortunately declared medically unfit to compete in the semifinal match against Kazakhstan’s Amankul Abilkhan. Krishan was declared unfit due to a cut on his left eyelid which he suffered during one of his previous matches in the tournament. The boxer was subsequently ruled out to compete on Friday due to the injury.

“There is inflammation in the retina as well and it is too risky to let him fight. He will have to take a break for a few weeks,” an official of the contingent was quoted as saying by PTI.
Krishan sustained the injury during the pre-quarterfinal match, and it was aggravated during his intense quarterfinal bout against China’s Tuoheta Erbieke Tanglatihan. During the fight, the Indian had to overcome bleeding to win the match and assure himself of a medal.
The Haryana-boxer created history by becoming the first India boxer to clinch a medal in three successive Asian Games. The Commonwealth Games 2018 gold medallist won the lightweight 60kg category gold in the Guangzhou edition in 2010, before winning a middleweight bronze medal in the 2014 edition in Incheon.
