Satish Kumar (+91kg) eased into the quarterfinals of his debut Olympic Games, defeating Jamaica’s Ricardo Brown in his opening bout in Tokyo. In the battle of two debutants, Satish prevailed 4-1, a comfortable win for him despite the split verdict. The 32-year-old two-time Asian Championships bronze-winner Indian was helped by Brown’s poor footwork throughout the bout though he did end up sustaining a cut on his forehead..
