"BEIJING (Reuters) - Surprise package Akhil Kumar celebrated India's Independence Day by moving a win away from giving his country its first Olympic boxing medal on Friday.

After outboxing 2005 world silver medallist Ali Hallab of France in the first round, Kumar sent home Russia's world champion Sergey Vodopyanov, who was the favourite in the bantamweight class."
