The Assam boxer was also announced as the player of the tournament

Light Flyweight (48kg)
The first to get India a gold medal was Haryana’s Nitu in the light flyweight (45-48 kg). Having recently defeated Russian 17-year-old Ekaterina Molchanova in the final of the Golden Gloves of Vojvodina Women’s Youth Tournament three months ago, Singh looked relaxed meeting her once again, Her jabs and straights proved too much for her fancied Kazakh rival Zhazira Urakbayeva. She won by a 5:0 verdict.she also qualified for 2018 Youth Olympics.

Flyweight (51kg)

Jyoti’s bout against Russia’s Ekaterina Molchanova was fought on an even keel. In a exciting contest, both the boxers matched each other punch for punch and had the packed stadium on its feet with their exchanges.The taller Russian seemed hardly perturbed by the vociferous support that her opponent was getting but the Indian was a shade better in connecting her blows.The Indian fetched a unanimous victory, leaving the Russian boxer in tears and her coaches irate.



Bantamweight (54kg)

Sakshi Choudhary proved to be one of the outstanding performers in Guwahati, the Junior World Champion adding the Bantamweight Youth title to her CV in impressive fashion with victory over England’s Ivy-Jane Smith.After registering a crushing win in the semi-finals, Sakshi faced England’s Ivy-Jane Smith in a tense bout. Haryana’s Sakshi had a tough time in the ring against England’s Ivy-Jane Smith in their bantamweight (54kg) bout. But she managed to land a flurry of straights in the final round to win gold.

Featherweight (57kg)

Just like Sakshi, Shashi too saw her most formidable challenge in the summit clash of the 57 kg category. Vietnam’s Do Hong Ngoc was quick on her feet and neither of them wanted to open their guard. This meant that the players played from a distance.The Vietnamese boxer went into the final unbeaten this year and looked focused from the opening seconds, stifling Chopra’s attacking instincts early on. The 18-year-old Indian found her rhythm in the second round, however, her jabs finally clicking and finding their target with increasing regularity.The final round bore a stark similarity to the first but Shashi saw out a win by points (4-1).

Light Welterweight (64kg)

he last bout of the day was Ankushita taking on Russia’s Ekaterina Dynnk and egged on by a vociferous crowd, the local girl had been laid low by chicken pox before the tournament .Ankushita Boro grew up just 200km from Guwahati, and the Assam spirit flowed through her as she recorded a famous world title win. Russia’s Ekaterina Dynnik struggled to assert herself on the tie despite some early pressure, and by the start of the final round, Boro looked relaxed and in control. The 18-year-old Indian used her height advantage and kept her distance, picking off Dynnik as she advanced to secure an emotional gold and send the crowd into raptures.
