Manju Rani had to settle for a silver medal in the ongoing Women's World Boxing Championships on Sunday as she lost the final match of the tournament. Second-seed Russian Ekaterina Paltceva defeated Rani 4-1 in the 48-kg weight category.

Sixth-seeded Rani had defeated Thailand's Chuthamat Raksat 4-1 on Saturday to enter the finals. She was the lone Indian to enter the final of the tournament. With this feat, she had become the first Indian woman boxer in 18 years to enter the finals in her maiden appearance in the tournament.


Earlier on Saturday, Mary Kom (51kg), Jamuna Boro (54kg) and Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) had to settle for a bronze medal after losing their respective semi-final matches.

Chinese Taipei's Huang Hsiao-Wen defeated Boro 5-0 to knock her out of the tournament. Turkey's Busenaz Cakiroglu outclassed Mary Kom 4-1 in the 51kg category. China's Yang Liu defeated Lovolina 3-2 in the 69-kg category.

Kom had to settle for a bronze medal, but with this, she became the only boxer to have eight medals in the history of the tournament. After the match, she was seen surprised at how she was scored by the match officials and made an appeal.

However, the International Boxing Association's (AIBA) technical committee rejected India's appeal regarding how Mary Kom was scored by the match officials in her semi-final match of the Women's World Boxing Championships.
