That’s it for our coverage from the IBA Women’s Boxing World Championships.

This has been a fruitful World Championship for India with four gold medals as they top the medal tally ahead of China, who won three gold medals!

Their best-ever showing after the 2006 edition, also hosted in New Delhi, which saw India win four gold medals, one silver and three bronze medals.

Going into the Paris Olympics next year, this should give a huge boost to the boxing contingent.

Samreen Razaaqui from New Delhi: Nikhat Zareen, World Champion again! As she wins, it’s the same enthralling celebrations like last time. After embracing her opponent, greeting the coaches, she bows down and prostates and then continues on her celebrating spree again. Superstar.

Some big punches from Nikhat! It’s Nikhat all the way. Oh hang on, Nguyen leads on three cards after round two I think.

Samreen Razzaqui in New Delhi: There was a flurry of punches from Nikhat in the middle that had the entire stadium go “Oooooh”. Clean, powerful and accurate. No surprise there, 5-0 to Nikhat.

Hello and welcome to Scroll’s live coverage of the IBA Women’s Boxing World Championships. Our correspondent Samreen Razzaqui is at the KD Jadhav Indoor Hall in New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium to provide updates too.

It’s the final day of the 2023 IBA women’s Boxing World Championships with two of India’s top boxers in Nikhat Zareen and Lovlina Borgohain gunning to end the tournament on a high for their nation. It was already a fine Saturday as both Nitu Ghanghas and Saweety Boora won their finals.

A year after being crowned World Champion in the 52kg category, Nikhat Zareen is in the final again, this time in the 50kg category. Despite switching categories, Nikhat has been in imperious form at the tournament. In the final, she will be up against two-time Asian champion Nguyen Thi Tam.

Lovlina Borgohain comes into her 75kg final (a new category for her too) hoping to finally finish on top of the podium after twice winning bronze in 2018 and 2019. She can take inspiration (if she needs any) from her compatriot Saweety Boora, who also won her first gold medal yesterday after missing out in 2014.

Stay tuned for updates.
