Could have won gold from other draw: Yogeshwar Dutt
"My group was a tough one. There were Olympic and World Champions in my group. If I would have been in some other group I could have won the gold. I lost my pre-quarterfinal bout to Russia' Besik Kudukhov, who is the current World Champion and Beijing Games bronze medallist," said Dutt at his felicitation programme by Mittal Champions Trust.
The 29-year-old said that he was hungry to win the metal which was missing from his kitty.
"The four year wait from Beijing to London was a long one and I was desperate and hungry to win the medal. My main aim was to bring a medal for the country for which Mittal Champions Trust helped me a lot.
"I want to thank Mittal Champions Trust. They helped me when I was injured providing funds for my leg surgery in South Africa where I spent six months recovering."
Yogeshwar said he is now determined to change the colour of his medal in the next edition in 2016.
"I am 29, I am still fit to go. I am determined to win the gold in Rio," he said.
