The 24-year-old World No 6 triumphed via a unanimous 3-0 decision even though he was stretched for the entire duration of six rounds in the middleweight contest. Fighting in the bout itself was enough to assure him of a berth in the final Olympic Qualifiers next month in Venezuela but Vikas got a shot in the arm by winning the contest.
The Indian pulled off the result just a night before heading to the Olympic Qualifiers in Baku, Azerbaijan, which start on June 16.
