Hamburg: Amit Phangal gave India a good start by advancing to the pre-quarterfinals in the 19th World Boxing Championships here.

The Asian bronze-medallist got the better of Italy's Federico Serra in a split verdict to enter the second round on Friday night.

Amit will now take on seventh seed Carlos Quipo of Ecuador.

The Indian boxer recovered from a slow start in the first round to seal the deal in the second and third rounds although a split decision went in his favour.
