London: Boxer Vikas Krishan brought smiles on Indian faces Friday night reaching the quarterfinals in the 69 kg category. He got the better of American Errol Spence 13-11 over three rounds.

Vikas started off well and registered an easy 4-2 win in the first round, but Spence came back strongly taking the second set 6-5. In the final round, Vikas looked very tired and did only defending all through.

He seemed to have lost it but when the jury declared him the winner, he himself gave a surprised look.
