Hosts India claimed two more titles to seal their place at the top of the medal table at the International Boxing Association Women’s World Championships here.

Indian duo Nikhat Zareeen and Lovlina Borgohain secured the respective light flyweight and middleweight gold medals on a thrilling final night at the KD Jadhav Indoor Hall in Indian capital New Delhi.

The double success came after victories for Nitu and Saweety yesterday as India climbed above China to take pole position in the medal standings.

Nikhat showed no signs of any nerves as she produced a superb performance to defeat Nguyen Thi Tam of Vietnam by unanimous decision.

The venue was rocking as Nikhat stamped her authority on the contest with an impressive first round before finishing the fight with a great left hook.

It was Nikhat’s second world title after claiming flyweight gold at last year’s event.

All the pressure was on Borgohain to ensure India triumphed in all four of the gold-medal bouts they were involved in.

Borgohain came under real pressure in her battle with Caitlin Parker who will be frustrated not to emerge victorious.

Parker won the second round and looked strong in the third only for Borgohain to be declared the winner following a bout review.

The Australian's coaches waved their fingers in dismay at the verdict, while the Indian fans celebrated wildly.

Arguably the most impressive performance of the night came from Brazil’s Beatriz Ferreira.

The Olympic silver medallist outclassed Colombia’s Angie Paola Valdés, with her lightning quick hands causing havoc as she won the lightweight title by unanimous decision.

Ferreira becomes a two-time world champion, adding to the title she won in 2019.

Colombia also had to settle for silver in the bantamweight category as Huang Hsiao-wen of Chinese Taipei saw off Yeni Arias in the final.

Huang used her superior height advantage to great effect as she landed a series of heavy blows in a convincing victory.

Algeria’s Imane Khelif had been due to contest the welterweight final only to be disqualified after the IBA ruled that she had failed to meet eligibility rules.

The decision enabled Thailand’s Janjaem Suwannapheng, who had lost to Khelif in the semi-finals, to take the Algerian’s place in the final.

Suwannapheng was unable to seize her opportunity as she was defeated by Yang Liu who claimed China’s third gold of the tournament.

Uzbekistan’s Navbakhor Khamidova, who was beaten by Khelif in the quarter-finals, was promoted to bronze medal position alongside Kazakhstan’s Nadezhda Ryabets following the reshuffle caused by the 23-year-old’s exclusion.

The final fight of the tournament saw Khadija Mardi of Morocco overcome Lazzat Kungeibayeva of Kazakhstan to clinch heavyweight gold.
