India bag 4 gold in World Women's Boxing Championship


India wrapped up the Women's World Boxing Championships in New Delhi with four gold medals.

Tokyo Olympic bronze medallist Lovlina Borgohain added fourth gold to India's tally by defeating Caitlin Parker of Australia with a 5-2 split decision win in the final of the middleweight 75-kilogram category at the Indira Gandhi Sports Complex. This is Lovlina’s maiden gold medal at the World Championships. She clinched the bronze at the 2018 and 2019 editions.

Earlier, Indian pugilist Nikhat Zareen defeated Vietnam's Nguyen Thi Tam in the 50 kg light flyweight category to clinch third gold for India at the tournament. The 26-year-old created history by becoming World Champion for the second successive time. She has become only the second Indian woman boxer after Mary Kom to bag more than one world title.

Yesterday, Indian pugilists Nitu Ghanghas and Saweety Boora brought two gold medals for the country at the Championships. (AIR NEWS)
