Cologne Boxing world cup: Four Indian women boxers confirm 4 medals

FILE PIC: PTI
In the ongoing Cologne Boxing world cup in Germany, four Indian women boxers have confirmed 4 medals for the Nation in the tournament.

Last night,  Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Pinki Rani and reigning youth world champion Sakshi assured India of two medals by entering the semi-finals scheduled later today.

The India Open gold medallist Pinki Rani defeated Thailand's Phunsang Cahiranchaya 5-0 in the quarter-final bout in 51 kg category.

The 18-year-old Sakshi won in contrasting fashion as she faced some stiff resistance from Cecille Kelle of Denmark in 57 kg category.

The Indian contingent has already been confirmed of at least a silver and a bronze after Meena Kumari Maisnam entered the 54 Kg finals and Pwilao Basumatary reached the 64 Kg  semi-finals .
 
India has sent a seven-member team to this prestigious European event following a healthy haul of six medals from the erstwhile Chemistry Cup held at Halle last year.

Gaurav Solanki  and Mohammed Hussamuddin  were the only Indians to stand on the top podium in the last edition. Twenty one nations have taken part across 17 weight categories at this tournament, which will help elite boxers to hone their skills ahead of the World Championships later this year.
