Opponent: Buse naz Cakirogllu (Turkey).
Cakirogllu is a very wary boxer, that suches as to hang back and catch her challengers on the counter. But while she starts sluggish, the ruling European Games and Championships gold medallist ratchets up the pace as the fight unfolds. In her quarterfinal, she maintained previous professional globe champ Zongju Cai of China at bay with her lightning-quick lead overhand. In short, the 23-year-old southpaw has all the ingredients required to out-Mary Mary.
The Indian has the experience to switch up her gameplan on the fly and has been evaluated by both an ultra-aggressive and a careful counter-attacking boxer in her run to the semis. The Indian has never ever lost a Globes semifinal and also looks excellent to proceed the run on Saturday.
Manju Rani (48kg)
Challenger: Chuthamat Raksat (Thailand)
The unheralded Manju has been in marvelous giant-killing form in Russia and also fell leading seed North Oriental Kim Hyang-Mi on Thursday. Up next for the 19-year-old is a challenger that has dispatched her own share of favourites this week.A really loose striker with a propensity for warmed exchanges, the unseeded Raksat beat third as well as fifth-seeded competitors to guarantee her second Worlds medal. After an unsuccessful action up to the flyweight division, the 26-year-old has gone back to the 48kg classification, in which she won the medal at the 2014 Globes. Subjugating a carefree Manju, though, would be a high request for the Thai fighter.
Jamuna Boro (54kg)
Opponent: Hsiao-Wen Huang (Chinese Taipei)
It will certainly take something special for Boro to get the front runner on Saturday. Chinese Taipei look all set to preserve the gold medal in the 54kg group via Hsiao-Wen Huang, who traded weight categories with last year’s gold medallist Lin Yu-ting (that is currently torturing the 57kg competitors). Huang, the Asian Championships silver medallist, has taped 2 5-0 victories this tournament. At 5’7, she is an absolute beast in the bantamweight group, and also the enormous elevation benefit is just emphasized by her lanky framework and also long reach.
Lovlina Borgohain (69kg)
Challenger: Liu Yang (China)
China’s gambit to rest out in 2015’s finalist as well as present Asian champion Gu Hong in favour of the relatively unknown Liu Yang has paid returns. Yang, 27, defeated defending welterweight champion and leading seed Chen Nien-chin by means of a split decision in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
The Indian could select to take a look at the brighter side, as Yang’s march to the semis means Borgohain prevented a Worlds semifinal rematch with Chen, that won the competition conveniently in the last version. The 22-year-old regularly changes off in high-profile clashes, but the wish to enhance on the bronze from last year can spur Borgohain on to the final.
