India top AIBA boxing with five golds; Jyoti qualifies for Youth Olympics

India's Sakshi is declared the winner against Ivy Jane Smith of England following the final bout of the bantam weight category at the AIBA Women's World Youth Boxing Championships in Guwahati on Sunday

Indian pugilists put up a stunning performance at the finals of the AIBA Women's Youth World Championships at the Karmabir Nabin Chandra Bordoloi Indoor Stadium here this evening, bagging five out of ten gold medals to end on top.

Local girl Ankushita Boro completed the kitty for India, getting the best of Russian Ekaterina Dynnik in a split decision 4:1, in the final bout of the tournament in her Light Welter category. A total of 160 boxers from 31 countries began the week-long tournament, which also made available four quota places for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires. With just one defeat in her career, there were notably few openings in the Russian Federation defences for O'Connor to exploit, and the latest win for the ever-impressive Shamonova saw gold and a place at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games assured. This now takes India's tally to five finalists in this elite championships for the first time.

Nitu (Light Fly) started the Indian campaign on a winning note, defeating her Kazakhstan rival Zhazira Urakbayeva by a unanimous decision.

The bout between Sakshi and England's Ivy-Jane Smith played out in a similar manner.

The last gold for the country was added by Shashi by dismantling Vietnam's Ngoc Do Hong in the 57kg category summit clash.

Shashi was a slow starter, letting the Vietnamese get through her defence, but she came back strongly to win by a 4:1 verdict. Monkhor too upped the tempo in the final round but Shashi took advantage of her longer reach which helped her connect some clean straights and ended with a win.

Welterweight (69kg) United States' Citlalli Ortiz looked to have her tactics straight against Russia's tall Natalia Sychugova, closing her down and not allowing her to express herself from the first seconds of their Welterweight final. The lone Kazakh gold medalist was Arailym Begdilda, who defeated Russia's Anastasiia Rybak 3:2.

Heavy: Kristina Tkacheva (RUS) bt Isdlambekova Dina (KAZ) 5-0.

According to another news report, female Indian boxers had not won a gold medal at the Championship since 2011.
