Nikhat, Nitu and two other Indians enter quarters of Women’s World Boxing Championships

New Delhi, Mar 21(UNI) Indian boxers Nikhat Zareen, Nitu Ghanghas, Manisha Moun and Jaismine extended their dazzling show at the Mahindra IBA Women’s World Boxing Championships as they progressed into the quarter-finals with dominating victories at the Indira Gandhi Sports Complex in New Delhi on Tuesday.
The defending champion Nikhat outpunched Mexican pugilist Fatima Herrera comfortably by unanimous decision in the 50kg pre-quarterfinals. The Indian made an aggressive start and launched the attack from the word go, exhibiting quick movement as she proved too strong for Herrera.
“I played this boxer in the last World Championships too and had won. She was a little tougher today than last time. My weight category has changed from 52 to 50kg and my speed has increased but I still have to work on some things. I am happy that I played well today. Each player that I have played till now was tough,” said Nikhat, who will be up against the Thai boxer Chuthamat Rakshat in the quarter-finals.
