Rio de Janeiro  : Just one win away from winning an Olympic medal after a comprehensive victory over his opponent in his pre-quarterfinal bout, Indian boxer Vikas Krishan says he wants nothing less than a gold in the Rio Games.

Vikas stormed into the quarterfinals with a one-sided 3-0 win by unanimous decision against Onder Sipal of Turkey in the men’s 75kg middleweight bout, and he now feels that Uzbek Bektemir Melikuziev, who is four years junior to him, stands on his way of an unprecedented boxing gold medal.

“He (Melikuziev) is the toughest in the group. Mark my words, if I am able to defeat him, I will return home with a gold. I won’t take a silver or bronze. I will return empty-handed or the gold medal.”
