In the World Women’s Boxing Championships, Lovlina Borgohain, a three-time Olympic medalist, was one of four Indian boxers to win their quarterfinal bouts. The match was at K D Jadhav Hall in Delhi yesterday.
Lovlina Borgohain defeated Mozambique’s World bronze medal winner, Rady Gramane, 5-0 in a very physical contest. During her bout, she managed to maintain a reasonable distance and used her counterpunches, despite being hit a few times herself. She is now set to face two-time Olympic medallist and former World Champion Li Qian of China.
Lovlina, alongside World Champion Nikhat Zareen, led the Indian charge in the quarterfinal rounds to ensure four Indian pugilists remained in contention at the semifinal stage.
