When Altansetseg attacked, the Indian southpaw countered her opponent with a right hooks. The two boxers played from close range and indulged in a lot of holding in the fast-paced bout with Nitu being handed a penalty deduction for clinching towards the end of the second round.

Despite Altansetseg’s strong comeback in the second round, Nitu still managed to take the round 3-2. In the final three minutes, Nitu started from far, but soon ditched the strategy and reverted to playing from a close range as Altansetseg was also handed a point deduction for clinching.

Nitu has been in indomitable form in the entire tournament, winning her first three bouts by RSC (Referee stops contest). Against Alua Balkibekova, who knocked her out in the last edition in the quarterfinal stage, she skilfully adapted to negate the Kazakh’s strong suit.
