Nikhat Zareen wins gold at Women's World Boxing Championships, beats Jutamas Jitpong in 52kg final

At the Istanbul World Cup, Nikhat Zareen closed her eyes and prayed. His rival Jutamas Jitpong of Thailand had reached the final but Zareen threw enough punches to not let this happen.

When her hand finally came up, Zareen roared, her face filled with emotion before she burst into tears. Holding India coach Bhaskar Bhatt cried at the side of the ring

She closed it with the third round of winning the quarter-finals of the Tokyo Olympics. Or so he thought

After two and a half years in the worst-case scenario of MC Mary Kom's bid to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics in the flyweight division (52kg), Zareen was a world champion.

That conflict with Mary Kom, her insistence on the election case strengthened Zareen's determination. In Istanbul he made a statement, large and clear.

This was one of the biggest topics he wanted to cover. Zareen defeated its rivals in five rounds, winning all by one vote 5-0. She took the ring with a swagger

Ever since she rose to prominence with gold at the World junior Championships and youth in Turkey, her strength has never doubted.
