New Delhi, Sep 11: Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain defeated Russia’s Elmira Azizova in the opening round of the 13th International Silesian Championship for women being held in Gliwice, Poland.
Borgohain prevailed 4-1 in the welterweight (69kg) category contest Monday night against Azizova, a silver medallist at the Nation’s Cup earlier this year besides a bronze-winner at the Russian national championships.
Borgohain will next be up against Czech Republic’s Martina Schmoranzova.
The Indian boxer is a gold medallist from the India Open and a bronze-winner from the Ulaanbaatar Cup in Mongolia, earlier this year.
India has sent a reasonably strong team for the tournament, which is being competed among boxers from 21 countries, including England, Kazakhstan, France Germany, and Ukraine.
The Indian team for the event is a mix of youth and experience, featuring veterans like the celebrated MC Mary Kom (48kg) and L Sarita Devi (60kg) along with up-and-coming names such as former youth world champion Shashi Chopra (57kg) and Asian youth champion Manisha (54kg).
Manisha also claimed a silver at the youth world championships last month in Hungary.
