Touheta’s combination punches also connected better. Ashish went all out in the final three minutes and managed to trouble Touheta despite a cut beneath his left eye.
The judges also scored unanimously in his favour but the Chinese had the decisive lead which gave him the victory. Touheta will next face Brazil’s third-seeded Herbert Sousa, who is a world championships bronze-medallist.
Ashish is the third Indian boxer to bow out of the mega-event after Vikas Krishan (69kg) and Manish Kaushik (63kg) also exited with opening-round losses.
