Haryana ladies make successful begin at youth boxing WC

New Delhi, April 14

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
