Haryana boxers Poonam (57kg) and Vinka (60kg) registered victories with varying degrees of difficulty to get India off to a good start at the Youth World Boxing Championships in Kielce, Poland.

The two advanced to the pre-quarterfinals after notching up contrasting wins in the first round. While Poonam out-punched Colombia’s Valeria Mendoza 5-0, Vinka edged past Russia’s Daria Panteleeva 3-2 to make the last-16 stage.

India have fielded a 20-member contingent — 10 men and as many women — for the marquee age-group event. — TNS, agencies
