GUWAHATI, June 24: Assam boxer Lovlina Borgohain settled for a silver at the Ulaanbaatar Cup held in Mongolia today. India Open gold medalist, who had made her way into the summit clash after a dominating win in the last four stage, looked to have a measured approach in comparison to her free-flowing punches from the last round and suffered a loss to Chinese Taipei’s Nien Chen Chen.

Lovlina stayed on the defensive while looking for her window of her opportunity to land her hooks but Nien Chen took advantage of the Indian’s stance and kept landing her combinations to bamboozle her opponent and run away with the victory with a unanimous decision.
