Nikhat Zareen (51kg) Sunday advanced to the second round of the Thailand Open International boxing tournament with a comfortable opening win in Bangkok. Nikhat is a former Junior World Champion.

The boxer from Hyderabad prevailed 5-0 over New Zealand’s Tasmyn Benny in the first round of the tournament.
However, former youth world champion Shashi Chopra (60kg) bowed out of the competition early.

The Haryana-boxer went down to local favourite Sudaporn Seesondee in her opening clash, making it a mixed day for India.
