The Indian boxer progresses to the quarter-finals after a split-decision win.
What a dominant performance by Lovlina. She started slowly but then eventually made her presence felt with impressive uppercuts.
She relied on counter-punches which Lovlina connected fairly well. She is now the second boxer after Mary Kom to qualify for the quarter-final bout at the Olympics.
