I was waiting for my bout since a long time and it was felt great to box today. My Chinese opponent was taller and had more speed than me but it was not that tough, said Kavinder after his bout. My next bout is against Finland’s boxer who is also taller than me. I will strategise for him along with my coaches,”  Kavinder said after the winning his bout.  READ | Ken Shamrock expresses a desire to share the ring with Brock LesnarKavinder Bisht had to strive to notch up a 3-2 win against China’s Chen Zhihao as he entered the Round of 16 at the AIBA Men’s World Championships in Ekaterinburg, Russia today.The fifth seed’s early use of aggression backfired when his Chinese opponent managed to resist his punches in the final round to land some of his own.
