Nitu’s match lasted for only one minute and thirty seconds. Nitu’s boxing prowess was such that the match could not go beyond the second round and Ghangas won it via referee stoppage. Ghangas was extremely superb in these two rounds and gained approval from all judges though Dhillon competed well. The win has assured atleast a silver medal to India and the final will take place on Sunday at 3:00 PM IST. There is a lot of exciting boxing action for fans today.
