Extending splendid run, Indian boxers put up phenomenal performance on yet another glorious day at the AIBA Youth Men's and Women's World Boxing Championships after as many as country's five pugilists made their way into the quarter-finals on fifth day of the competition in Kielce, Poland.
Asian Junior Champion Biswamitra Chongtham led Indian pugilists' onslaught in the men's section as he outclassed Khosroshahi Parvizi 5-0 to enter 49kg quarter-finals. Manipuri pugilist Biswamitra, who was impressive in the trials where he defeated Khelo India gold medallist, looked in complete control against the Irish boxer as he carried on with the momentum before finishing the bout in his favour.
Meanwhile in the women's section, Gitika (48kg), who came into the match beating European Champion Diana Ermakova, continued her impressive form as she notched up a flawless 5-0 triumph against Kazakhstani boxer Arailym Marat to progress into the last-8 stage. However, Nisha Gurjar (64kg) was the lone Indian who couldn't progress on Day 5 as she suffered a 1-4 loss against Latvia's Beatrise Rozentale in the pre-quarters.
