Rising woman pugilist Jamuna Boro took merely over a minute to book a pre-quarterfinal berth as Indian boxers continued their fine performance in the World Youth championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, on Wednesday.
Boro won against Lesotho’s Ntsike Mofalali in a Technical Knockout (TKO) in her opening featherweight 57kg bout. The Indian forced two knockdowns within two minutes of the bout’s start which Mofalali could not withstand.
In fact, the boxer from Lesotho collapsed in the ring when counting was on following the second knockdown after a ferocious display by Boro.
On Tuesday night, Sandeep Kumar (60kg) defeated Latvia’s Ralfs Ausmanis 3-0 in a clinical performance.
