It was quite a difficult outing for Ravi as he was down 9-2 in the 2nd round. Though he won the first round 2-1 but his chances of winning the bout looked narrow. But, he made a comeback and slammed down Sanayev, who got injured and required some time.

After that, Dahiya was quick to capitalize on the situation and pinned the Kazak down. Even though Sanayev was leading 9-7, Ravi won the match by pinfall. Ravi Kumar Dahiya had defeated Bulgaria’s Georgi Valentinov in the quarterfinals 14-4 on technical superiority.
