Four Indian boxers in semisJune 22, 2018, Delhi
India were assured of four medals at the Ulaanbaatar Cup in Mongolia after four boxers from the country, including world and Asian silver-winner Sonia Lather (57kg), advanced to the semi-finals yesterday.
Joining her in the last-four stage were Lovlina Borgohain (69kg), Himanshu Sharma (49kg) and Ashish (64kg). All the four boxers are guaranteed of at least a bronze medal each. However, world silver-medallist Sarjubala Devi (51kg) bowed out in the quarterfinal stage after losing a close bout to Mongolian Myagmardulam Nandinsetseg 1-4.
Sonia produced an assured performance to defeat local favourite Myagmar Gundegmaa to make the last-four stage. Lovlina was equally dominating in her 5-0 win over Thailand’s Suchada Panich.
