Yes, the only chance now is if Ren Cancan and Lin Yu-Ting make it to the SF here allowing Marykom to go thru. Another opportunity would be for her to get a Tripartite Invitation due to her legendary status. Both chances are remote.

Another one down! Sarjubala lost to Nazym Kyzaibay(KAZ) 0-3 in QF.

Besides, is it sour grapes?
Mary Kom was robbed of a win

Zareen Nikhat also loses.

Mary Kom's chances for Rio is gone as Lin Yu-Ting goes down to Nicola Adams. Anyway Ren Cancan gave a walkover, so a double blow.

I think so. I watched the bout and Mary Kom was beaten fair and square. No way did she dominate the bout as they are claiming. Besides, we cannot blame anyone when we cannot get our organisation in place to defend our boxers in such an eventuality.

Just a reflection on our sports press. I trust the opinions of Sameer, SSP, Mugu and some others here far more than anything I read in the press....

Great result. Great skills displayed. I see the next women's boxing star in her! :bounce:

Much inspite my apprehension, she actually dominated the local Kazakh boxer for most of it. I was worried about bias in the results. The 1st two rounds were rightfully unanimous for Sonia. The 3rd round brought a bit of uncertainty since one of the Judges initially went the other way and the results were shown, only to be corrected midway into the 4th round that another Judge also had gone the other way, making it close on 2 out of 3 Judges.

However, she did well in the final round, and better sense prevailed amongst the Judges, giving her the unanimous verdict!

All the very best to her for the World Championships Finals tomorrow! It's quite sometime our country hasn't seen a new World Champ being crowned, touchwood! :goodluck:

This is not an Olympic weight, right? I suppose the competition would be lower this year.

Yes, this is not an Olympic weight. So, I am not that excited. But, still achievement to beat a local boxer ( and it is indeed difficult to get a result against Kazakh boxers at home ) and get to the final. She must have really dominated the bout to get a decision in her favour by all judges.

Dhiraj Rangi lost a close bout in a split decision 1-2 against top seed in his weight category from Mexico. We are never going to get those close decisions with no federation.

Also Satish Kumar was unfortunate that he suffered an injury in second round against an Irish boxer if he had taken the first round.

Manoj Kumar and Sumit Sangwan won their second round bouts though.

So, we now have 4 boxers only left with Rio qualification chances - Devendro, Manoj Kumar, Sumit Sangwan and Vikas Krishnan.

Vikas is still to fight his R32 fight while other 3 are in round of 16.

Both Devendro and Vikas Krishnan won their bouts 3-0 today.

Devendro is thru to QF while Vikas, Manoj Kumar, Sumit Sangwan are in PQF. Only 2 quotas in Devendro category while 4 in other 3. So, all 4 of them are 2 wins away from Rio qualifiction but 2 wins is not an easy task at this level.
