Lovlina Borgohain Wins Bronze at the Women’s World Boxing Championships

Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain lost the 69kg weight category semifinal by 4-1 to Chen Nien-Chin of Taiwan, thus finishing her tournament with a bronze medal.

In another semifinal action on Thursday, India’s Lovlina Borgohain finished her tournament with a bronze medal after she lost to Nien-Chin Chen of Taiwan in her bout in 69 kg weight category.

In the semifinal fight with the opponent from Taiwan, Lovlina was at the back foot right from the beginning. The one-point deduction in the final round was decisive and Lovlina lost the game by a split 1-4 decision. Even after winning a point, she got a warning from the referee and was docked.

 

This made Lovlina’s exit from the 10th AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships, where she had to settle for a bronze. This tournament was Lovlina’s maiden World Boxing Championships participation.

Lovlina had to face defeat from Chen earlier this year. Chen dominated the game right from the beginning. Though Borgohain too started brightly, her random punching combinations and double jabs never really affected her wily opponent, Chen.

The 21-year old boxer from Assam quoted after her game, “I tried my best and I thought I had my combination punches going. But then, my opponent (Chen) came back strongly in the last two rounds.”

In two other interesting events on Friday – Sonia Chahal and Simranjeet Kaur will take to the rings for their semifinal fights in 57 kg and 64 kg.

Mary Kom is ready for a Merry Finale!

On the other hand, five-time gold medalist MC Mary Kom will be playing her final bout at the World’s Women Boxing Championships. She will be facing Ukraine’s Hanna Okhota and a tough fight is assured between the two at the KD Jadhav Indoor Stadium on Saturday.

Mary Kom quoted, “I will try my best in the final,” Mary said after the bout. “I have fought with this girl in Poland and I have beaten her. I will try my best inside the ring.”
