Debutant Manju Rani (48kg) was the lone Indian to enter the final, while six time champion MC Mary Kom and two others signed off with bronze medals.

Sixth seeded Rani defeated Thailand’s Chuthamat Raksat 4-1 in her semi-final bout. She will take on second seeded Russian Ekaterina Paltceva in the summit clash on Sunday.

However, Mary Kom, Jamuna Boro and Lovlina Borgohain settled for bronze medals in their respective weight categories. In case of Borgohain, it was her second successive third place finish.

Mary Kom lost 1-4 to second seed Busenaz Cakiroglu of Turkey who is the reigning European champion.

Boro went down 0-5 to top seed and former Asian Games Bronze medalist Huang Hsiao Wen of Chinese Taipei.

Borgohain squared off against China’s Yang Liu and was 2-3 in a hard fought bout.

The Indian contingent sought a review of the decision in Mary Kom’s boiut but the appeal was turned down by the AIBA.
