Despite being severely behind Dahiya remained calm showed incredible mental toughness and dramatically changed the outcome of the fight in his favour.

Ravi Kumar Dahiya led 2-1 after the first session but Sanayev came prepared and attacked the Indian's left leg. After taking a strong hold of it he turned him three times to score six points in a flash. Suddenly Dahiya was trailing and facing defeat but his greater endurance and technical skill were still in play.
