@BFI_official
Indian pugilists bagged nine medals including three gold, two silver and four bronze at the Cologne Boxing World Cup ended in Cologne, Germany yesterday. Amit Panghal won  gold in men's category while Manisha Moun  and Simranjit Kaur won gold  in Women's category.

In the women's category,  AIBA Women's World Boxing Championships bronze medallist Simranjit Kaur Baath beat the local German opponent Maya Kleinhans hands down with clear punches in the final. The Indian reduced the fighting distance successfully against the taller opponent and won the bout by a split decision taking the gold in the 60kg category.

In the all-India fight in the 57kg category final, Manisha Moun defeated  two-time AIBA Women's Youth World Champion Sakshi Choudhary 3:2 in a keenly fought contest. Sakshi ended her campaign with a silver.

The 2018 Asian Games gold medallist and 2019 ASBC Asian Champion Amit Panghal won the round-robin competition at the men's flyweight in 52kg. He defeated France's  Billal Bennama on his way to the final. He was given a walkover in the final by his German opponent.

India's super heavyweight (91kg) boxer Satish Kumar had an emotional end to his campaign as he defeated France's Djamili Dini Moindze in the semis but unfortunately, he had to withdraw against Germany's Nelvie Tiafack owing to an injury in the summit clash and settle for Silver.


Sonia Lather (57kg), Pooja Rani (75kg) Gaurav Solanki (57kg) and Mohamed Hussamudin (57kg) won bronze medals in their respective categories.
