Commonwealth Games bronze-winner Hussamuddin went past Ukraine's Mykola Butsenko without having to step inside the ring as his opponent conceded the bout because of a hand injury. Hussamuddin had won a silver medal in the 2017 edition of the event.

However, Lather went down to Ukraine's Lullia Tsyplakova in the semi-finals. The two-time Asian silver-winner lost 2-3 to end with a bronze medal at the event's 71st edition.

The tournament features more than 200 boxers from over 30 countries and is a season-opener in the European boxing calendar.
