Satish Kumar in his previous match defeated Jamaican Ricardo Brown in the round of 16 at the Kokugikan arena. Satish defeated Brown by a split decision of 4-1. In the first round of the bout, Satish started in a very attack-minded way by using his strong right hand to attack instead of defending and his plan worked as all five of the judges voted in favour of him. Ultimately he went on to win the second and final round as well.
On the other hand, Bakhodir Jalolov is a multiple Asian and World Championships winner. Bakhodir Jalolov comes into the Olympics on the back of a gold medal in the 2021 Asian Championships and had won the gold in the 2019 World Championships. At 6’7, Jalolov has the height advantage and his reach will definitely be something that Kumar has to worry about.
