Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain progressed into the quarter-finals of the Women's Welterweight Category after defeating Nadine Apetz of Germany in the Round of 16. 

The opening round went in favor of Lovlina who had the upper hand on the card of three out of five judges. The Indian boxer was making good use of her reach throughout the round and was having good success with her jabs which made it difficult for Nadine Apetz to close the distance. Though Nadine pushed harder in the second round, Lovlina had a slight advantage on the scorecard which raised the stakes for the third round. Lovlina delivered a solid performance in the third round as well which gave her the win and a spot in the Quarterfinals with a score of 3-2.
