Six-time champion in boxing M C Mary Kom advances to quarterfinals of the World Women’s Championships in 51 Kg category in Russia. 

Mary Kom triumphed 5-0 against Thailand’s Jutamas Jitpong; Manju Rani enters quarterfinals in 48-kilogram category after a comprehensive victory.

However, in the 75-kilogram category, there was disappointment for India when former silver-medallist Saweety Boora lost her pre-quarterfinal bout in a split decision despite a valiant fight. Boora was up against second-seeded Welshwoman Lauren Price.
