Indian boxers Pinki Rani and Parveen lost their respective semi-final bouts to get knocked out of the ongoing Cologne Boxing World Cup in Germany. Meanwhile, Sakshi and Pwilao Basumatary have qualified for the finals of the 57 kg and 64 kg categories respectively on Friday in the World Cup.

World Youth Champion Sakshi registered a thumping win in her semi-final bout in the 57kg category as she defeated Tintabthai Preedakamon of Thailand with a 5-0 verdict in her favour on Friday. The 18-year-old Indian will now face Ireland’s Michaela Walsh in the final of the ongoing Cologne Boxing World Cup.
