Former Commonwealth Games silver-medallist Mandeep Jangra (69kg) notched up a knockout win to enter the quarterfinals on another day of dominance by favourites in the Senior Men's National Boxing Championships on Tuesday.

Jangra, representing Haryana, knocked out All India Police's (AIP) Pawan Kumar in the second round of his pre-quarterfinal bout to enter the last-eight stage.

Commonwealth Games silver-winner and this year's Arjuna awardee Satish Kumar (+91kg), who is competing for the Services Sports Control Board (SSCB), also made the quarters after out-classing Madhya Pradesh's Monish Qureshi in the opening three minutes of his bout.

Commonwealth Games bronze-medallist Naman Tanwar (91kg) eased into the quarters by out-punching Karnataka's Nagesh. The Railways' boxer ended the contest in just the first round with his dominance.

There was no stopping the other big names either with Gold Coast CWG silver-medallist Manish Kaushik (60kg), competing for SSCB, advancing with a 5-0 win over Punjab's Vijay Kumar.

World Championships bronze-medallist Gaurav Bidhuri (56kg) also moved ahead after out-classing Puducherry's V Bharany. The bout was stopped in the second round owing to the Railways boxer's dominance.

Former medallist Jasveer Singh (+91kg) was also through to the quarters with a 4-1 win over Uttar Pradesh's Harshpreet Sahrawat. Jasveer is competing for RSPB.
