Grewal beat the man from Cyprus by virtue of technical superiority in a fixture in which he managed to score 10 points and conceded just a solitary point to book his place in the subsequent round.

In the semi-final of the event, Grewal came up against a Canadian wrestler with Indian origins in the form of Amarveer Dhesi.

Grewal got off to a good start as he claimed the first points of the semi-final event. But his fortunes changed when Dhesi came into his own and registered multiple points to run away with the lead before Grewal writhed in pain as a result of twisting his ankle.

At the end of the encounter, Deshi came out victorious with a score of 12-2 going in his favour as he took the win by points.
