That is the end of India's boxing campaign at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Out of the nine qualified pugilists from the country, only one returns with a medal - LOVLINA BORGOHAIN.
The 23-year-old from Assam fought well in the pre-quarters and quarterfinal but was of no match to the reigning World Champion Busenaz Surmeneli of Turkey in the semifinal.
Whether the Indian boxing campaign in Tokyo was successful or not is a debate for another day, but today it is all about one woman - LOVLINA BORGOHAIN.
