    October 26, 2019

    Northern Province pugilists barring Army’s Middle weight (75kg) fighter V. Niklas went out in a procession in the boxing quarter-finals of the 45th National Sports Festival in Badulla on Thursday.A packed card of over 50 bouts provided plenty of fireworks for spectators who braved the rain to witness boxing in the outdoor venue opposite the Uva Provincial Secretariat, even as the Festival was ceremonially declared open with an official opening ceremony at the Vincent Dias Stadium in the evening.
    V. Niklas, who hails from Killinochchi outclassed his opponent G.G.D.S. Munasingha from North Central province with a first-round technical knock out win. Air Force’s P.G.E. Madushan representing Southern province upset Indonesian President’s Cup bronze medallist Piyal Dharmasena of Army of Uva in a thrilling Fly weight (52kgs) winning by a split 3-2 points decision.
    There were some spectacular knock out wins with Eastern Province’s Vidhyalankara stunning Western Province’s Deshantha in the second round of a Bantam weight (56kg) contest while Uva’s Jayaweera knocked out North Western Province’s Kumara in the first round of a Heavy weight (91kg) clash.
