TOKYO: Boxer Lovlina Borgohain assured India a medal in women's welterweight by reaching the semi-finals, beating Chen Nien-Chin of Chinese Taipei in a quarterfinal bout at the Tokyo Olympics on Friday.


The 23-year-old from Assam won the quarterfinal encounter 4-1 on points, assuring India a medal as there is no playoff for losing semi-finalists in the Olympics.

She will meet Surmeneli Busenaz of Turkey in the first semi-final on August 4, a win assuring her of at least a silver medal.
