Two-time Olympian Vikas Krishan Yadav, at 28, is a veteran in the ring. After a promising start to his career that saw him win a gold at the 2010 Youth World Championships, Vikas went on to win medals in almost all major international events – Asian Games, Commonwealth Games, Asian Championships, and World Championships.

Keen to break his Olympics duck and get the only medal missing from his illustrious collection, Vikas, who competes in the 69kg division, has dabbled in professional boxing too, winning both his bouts in a brief stint in 2018. Currently locked at his Bhiwani home, the pugilist spoke to Firstpost on the science behind his brutal sport.
