Boxing: Nikhat Zareen, Shiva Thapa enter quarterfinals of Strandja Memorial Tournament

Defending champion Nikhat Zareen and four-time Asian medallist Shiva Thapa sailed into the quarterfinals of the Strandja Memorial Boxing Tournament at Sofia in Bulgaria.

India’s Zareen was declared the winner after her rival Sevda Asenova, a local favourite, abandoned the second-round bout. Asenova was a former gold-medallist at the event, which is into its 71st edition this year. Four-time Asian medallist Shiva Thapa defeated Poland’s Pavel Polakovic 5-0 in his last 16 stage clash in the 63kg category. He had received an opening-round bye.

In the men’s competition, Duryodhan Singh Negi (69kg) and Mohammed Hussamuddin (57kg) advanced to the second round after winning their respective opening bouts. Both the results were split 1-4 verdicts. More than 30 countries are taking part in the tournament, featuring over 250 boxers.
