Tokyo Olympics: Boxer Lovlina Borgohain Enters Quarterfinals, One Win Away From Confirming A Medal


Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain from Assam at the Olympics came up with a commanding display over experienced Germany pugilist Nadine Apetz at the Kokugikan Arena.

According to the reports, she is the first female boxer from Assam won by a split decision over the senior boxer, Lovlina moved into the quarter-final of the Women’s Welterweight division (64 to 69kg). She is now just a win away from sealing a medal for India. The semi-finalists are assured of at least a bronze in the sport at the Games.

The report further added that Lovlina will face former world champion and 4th seed Chen Nien-Chin in the quarter-final of Women’s Welter on July 30. She was at her counter-punching best against the senior Apetz. She started slow but grew into the contest, throwing some well-timed right jabs at Apetz who was also trying to make inroads in the first round which was a tight affair.

The third round started with Apetz under severe pressure to make things happen. But Lovlina was at her tactical best, frustrating her opponent and eventually sealing the quarter-final place.
