Bhopal: Living up to their favourites tag, Tokyo Olympics bronze medallist Lovlina Borgohain and the reigning world champion Nikhat Zareen registered contrasting victories to clinch the titles while Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB) lifted the team trophy with 10 medals at the 6th Elite Women’s National Boxing Championships in Bhopal on Monday.

Union Sports Minister Shri Anurag Thakur awarding gold medal to Lovlina Borgohain, 75 kg gold medallist.

While the Assam boxer Borgohain beat Arundhati Choudhary of Services Sports Control Board (SSCB) quite comfortably by 5-0 margin in the 75kg final, Zareen faced a stiff challenge from RSPB’s Anamika in the 50kg gold medal match before the 26-year-old Telangana pugilist tilted the match 4-1 in her favour to successfully defend her title.

Players received the medals in the presence of Hon’ble Union Minister for Youth Affairs & Sports and Information & Broadcasting, Government of India, Shri Anurag Singh Thakur along with the Boxing Federation of India officials.
