IBA Women’s World Boxing – Pooja storm into quarters while Lovlina crashed out

Two-time Asian champion Pooja Rani Bohra made a winning start to enter the quarterfinals, while Olympics bronze medallist Lovlina Borgohain crashed out of the World women’s boxing championships in Istanbul on Friday.

Pooja posted a convincing 5-0 victory against experienced Hungarian boxer and former Worlds bronze medallist Timea Nagy in an 81kg pre-quarterfinal bout.

Lovlina was ousted by Cindy Winner Djankeu Ngamba, a promising Cameroon born United Kingdom boxer representing the Fair Chance Team as she does not have a British passport, with a 4-1 verdict in a 70kg round of 16 match.

Pooja will meet two-time Australian National champion, Jessica Bagley, next.
