Lovlina Borgohain defeated Chinese Taipei's Nien-Chin Chen in women's 69 kg quarterfinal bout.
Boxer Lovlina Borgohain has reached the women's welterweight semi-final after defeating Chinese Taipei's Nien-Chin Chen in women's 69 kg quarterfinal bout by 4-1.
The win has helped 23-year-old Borgohain secure a bronze for India.
“The biggest joy for us is to watch Lovlina play, and the medal she brings from Tokyo will be our prized possession. When her mother suffered a failure of both her kidneys, she was worried and would not sleep at night worrying about her,” Lovlina’s father Tiken Borgohain told the Indian Express.
