Tomorrow, the Antillean will face Mexican Miguel Vega for the bronze medal, who beat Congolese Nathan Lunata 5-0.

For his part, Hernández beat fellow Indian Sumit 5-0 (triple 29-28 and double 30-27) and tomorrow he will fight for the bronze medal against Croatian Gabrijel Veocic.

After losing the opening round, the Cuban increased his attack with hooks to the chin and stomach in the final two rounds to get the win.
