The diminutive Manipuri, who is getting back to form after recovering from some niggles, exhausted his rival with a fine display of tempo-boxing, not letting the intensity slip even once.

Devendro did well to connect fine body blows while denying a clear shot due to Aldoms Suguro’s shell guard.

However, much to the Indian boxer’s disappointment, L Devendro’s overall supremacy did not find favor with the judges who ruled 3-2 in Suguro’s favor.
