Having being routed four times in their last seven encounters, the home boxers found themselves virtually out of the competition, with four teams qualifying for the second round from Group A. 

The Mumbai team is currently placed fifth with eight points among the six teams in Group A. This win takes Dynamo Moscow to a tied-second position along with Astana Arlans with 13 points apiece.
