@BFI_official
Nikhat Zareen and Meena Kumari Devi became the first Indian women boxers to win gold medals at the Strandja Memorial Tournament in Sofia, Bulgaria on Tuesday.

Zareen, a multiple-time national medallist, claimed a 5-0 win in the 51kg category finals against Filipino Irish Magno. Devi defeated another Filipino Aira Villegas 3-2,  in the bantamweight (54kg) summit clash.

However, Manju Rani (48kg) settled for a silver after a defeat from  Filipine's  Josie Gabuco in a split 2-3 verdict.   

Pwilao Basumatari (64kg), Neeraj (60kg) and Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) had settled for bronze medals after losing their semifinal bouts on Monday.

 India had won 11 medals including two gold at the 2018 edition.
