Youth World Boxing Championships: Ravina among three Indian boxers to progress into quarterfinals

NEW DELHI: Reigning Asian youth champion Ravina (63kg) showed her class and prowess to sail into the quarterfinals of the IBA Youth Men's and Women's World Boxing Championships in La Nucia, Spain.

Ravina defeated Hungary's Varga Franciska Rozi in the round-of-16. The Indian pugilist dictated the terms right from the start and landed punches throughout the first round.

Among the men boxers, Mohit (86kg) moved into the quarterfinals after his opponent Tomas Lemanas of Lithuania got disqualified in the second round.

Sahil Chauhan (71kg) entered the pre-quarterfinals after comfortably defeating Azerbaijan's Daniel Holostenco 5-0 in a round-of-32 bout.

Nikhil (57kg) and Harsh (60kg) lost their respective round-of-32 bouts. The former lost 1-4 to Kazakhstan's Kalinin Ilya while the latter had to suffer a referee stopping the contest (RSC) defeat against Erik Lsrayelyan of Armenia.
