Three Indians entered the finals at the AIBA Youth Women’s World Boxing Championships in Guwahati. The pugilists who made it in their respective categories are Ankushita Boro, Jyoti Gulia and Shashi Chopra.

In the 64 kg division, local favourite Ankushita Boro overcame Saksri Thanchanok. In her semifinal bout for the 64 kg lightweight category, 17 year old Ankushita Boro dominated her opponent throughout the game to secure an easy and one sided victory. Boro won the semi-final bout 5-0 against her Thai counterpart.

In the 51kg semi-final, Jyoti defeated Kazakhstan’s Zhansaya Abdraimova. She emerged triumphant in a split verdict. Jyoti will face Russia's Ekaterina Molchanova in the final. Molchanova sailed past Japan’s Rinka Kinoshita.

In the 57kg category, Shashi took advantage of her longer reach to connect some clean straights and fetched a unanimous verdict against Mongolia’s Namun Monkhor. Shashi will face Vietnam’s Do Hong Ngoc in the final on Sunday.
