Didn’t have any strategy, just wanted to fight fearlessly: Borgohain on historic Olympic win

TOKYO: She delivered a thoroughly clinical performance to ensure an Olympic medal on debut but Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) on Friday said she stepped into the ring against former world champion NienChin Chen without a concrete plan as she knew just a fearless approach would be enough.
The 23-year-old Assam boxer was smiling ear-to-ear after making the semifinals but also well aware that the task is only half done.
“Isi ladki se 4 baar haar chuki hun (I had lost to her four time earlier), all I wanted to do was prove a point to myself by being fearless against her. I was just looking for revenge,” she said with a wide grin in an online media interaction.
“I enjoyed myself in this bout, khul ke khela. There was no strategy, no plan. I knew her from before, the plan wasn’t even needed,” she added.
