Haryana boxers dominate as 11 women storm into semis

New Delhi, July 21 (SocialNews.XYZ) Reigning world champion Gitika led the way as 11 Haryana boxers progressed to the semifinals of the Youth Men's and Women's National Championships at the Delhi Public School (DPS) in Sonipat on Wednesday.

Gitika (48kg) continued her impressive run as she showed attacking prowess and maturity on her way to a 5-0 win over Delhi's Sanjana in the last-eight bout. Gitika will now square off against Ragini Upadhyay of Uttar Pradesh in the semifinal on Thursday.


In the light flyweight 50 kg quarterfinals, Haryana's Tamanna started the proceedings against Chandigarh's Kajal with a flurry of punches and dominated throughout before the referee stopped the contest (RSC) and declared the former as the winner in the beginning of the second round of the bout.

The remaining nine boxers from Haryana who made it to the semifinal are Neeru (52kg), Neha (54kg), Preeti (57kg), Preeti Dahiya (60kg), Khushi (63kg), Lashu Yadav (70kg), Saneha (75kg), Nidhi (81kg) and Deepika (+81kg).
