"I'm a thinking fighter. My confidence does not come from my strength or size, it comes from my belief that I can out-think the person I'm fighting. When I'm in the ring, I believe I'm the smartest person there." (livemint.com, 20 Jan 2012)

General
LONDON LOSS
He was eliminated from the 2012 Olympic Games in London in the preliminary round, despite initially being declared the winner. His opponent Errol Spence of the United States successfully appealed to the International Amateur Boxing Federation [AIBA] after claiming the referee had failed to notice Vikas committing fouls and intentionally spitting out his mouthguard. India lodged a counter appeal, which failed, and then took the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport [CAS]. This was also unsuccessful. "There is no provision in the AIBA Technical and Competition Rules allowing for an appeal against the decision of the competition jury in relation to a protest. The decision of the competition jury is final and cannot be appealed," a statement from CAS said.(ndtv.com, 06 Aug 2012, 04 Aug 2012; dnaindia.com, 04 Aug 2012)

OCCUPATION
