Light flyweight (48kg): India's Nitu defeated Bulgaria's two-time EUBC European Youth Champion Emi-Mari Todorova in the Balkan Women's Youth Tournament in October. Nitu, who received the right to box in Guwahati only in the final minute, had difficulties in the first round in their re-match in the global event. The 17-year-old Indian was more aggressive from the second round and she was able to beat Europe's star boxer in Guwahati.
China's three-time National Champion in various age groups Nie Yuan arrived to Guwahati as one of the gold medal contender of the light flyweight (48kg). The 18-year-old Chinese boxer, who trains in the city of Hebei, controlled all of the rounds against Scotland's Billie Denholm in her debuting contest but her next rival was more competitive, Mongolia's Mungunsaran Balsan. Nie Yuan had excellent defence in their contest and her performance was enough to beat her Mongolian rival in Guwahati.
Zhazira Urakbayeva is one of the best boxer in the Kazakh youth national team who demonstrated her fantastic technique in Guwahati. The AIBA Women's Junior World Boxing Championships bronze medallist Kazakh talent was too strong for Sri Lanka's Henayale Gedara Madumali Eranga Priyadarshani.
