Guwahati, Nov 4: Five-time Asian Championships medallist Shiva Thapa displayed his mettle in a hard-fought win and progressed to the quarterfinals of the ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships in Amman, Jordan on Friday.

Shiva Thapa (63.5kg) was up against Mongolia's Byambatsogt Tuguldur in the pre-quarterfinal bout. Both the boxers went toe-to-toe from the beginning 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 the opponent and secure a 3:2 victory by split decision in this fiercely contested bout.

Shiva will now take on the winner of the bout between Haidara Alasaly and Minsu Choi in the quarterfinals.
