But the Indian showed amazing tenacity as she significantly upped the ante in the second round. She ferociously attacked the 34-year-old Ukrainian, landing a flurry of punches to eventually seal the tie in her favour. After an impressive start to her campaign, Parveen will be up against the former Youth Olympics champion Jajaira Gonzalez of USA in the pre-quarter finals on Sunday. Later in the day, Nikhat Zareen (52kg), Manisha (57kg) and Saweety (75kg) will open their campaigns in the prestigious event.
Parveen (63kg) of India advanced to the pre-quarterfinals of the IBA Women’s World Boxing Championships in Istanbul on Wednesday with a convincing victory against Mariia Bova of Ukraine. In the light welterweight division, the 22-year-old from Haryana defeated the much more experienced boxer, who is 12 years her senior, by unanimous decision. Despite starting aggressively, the 2017 youth national champion was defeated in the first round by Bova, who matched Parveen’s enthusiasm.
