"The strategy was to win the first two rounds. My opponent was younger, more powerful and had more strength. But I banked on my experience," Vikas said after the bout. "I had never seen him fight before so wanted to observe him in the first minute. Then I tried to dominate. He was bending down to hit and I expected the referee to warn him, but he did not," he added. Gurcharan Singh Sandhu, the head coach of the Indian boxing squad, said that Vikas' strategy focussed on utilising his superior height to prevent Conwell from closing in which made it difficult for the American to score and pepper him with quick jabs to the body.
