The Indian played aggressively and landed a series of punches on her opponent, forcing the referee to stop the match and rule in Nitu’s favour.
With RSC, Nitu also won her previous matches and her intention to go for the yellow metal was evident in her stunning performance against this Japanese player. In her round of 16 with a first-round win by RSC, Nitu defeated Tajikistan‘s Sumaiya Qosimova and heads into the quarter-final with plenty of confidence.
