La Nucia (Spain): Boxer Lashu Yadav made her way into the women’s 70kg quarterfinals after thrashing Poland’s Marta Czerwinska by unanimous decision on second day of the IBA Youth World Boxing Championships 2022 on Thursday.
Besides Lashu’s commanding 5-0 win, Preeti Dahiya and the country’s two male pugilists also made progress into the next stage.
Preeti blanked Colombia’s Claudia Daniela 4-0 in the women’s 57kg Round-of-32 bout.
In the men’s section, Harsh exhibited an equally dominant display against Hungary’s Levente Olah to pocket the 60kg opening round match comfortably by 5-0 margin.
Ashish, on the other hand, was given a walkover in his 54kg round-of-32 contest against Nima Bayati of Iran.
Meanwhile, India’s unbeaten run in the prestigious event came to a halt after the Asian youth bronze medallist Pranjal Yadav suffered a close 2-3 loss against Uzbekistan’s Oltinoy Sotimboeva in a hard-fought women’s 81kg Last-16 encounter.
