Six-time world champion Mary Kom was knocked out of the Women's World Boxing Championships on Saturday after facing a defeat in the semi-finals of the tournament.
As a result, she would now have to settle for a bronze medal. Turkey's European champion Busenaz Cakiroglu defeated the 36-year-old 4-1 in the 51- kg category.
She had proceeded towards the semis after defeating Rio Olympics bronze medalist Ingrit Valencia 5-0 in the quarter-final.
India's Lovlina Borgohain (69kg), Jamuna Boro (54kg) and Manju Rani (48kg) are scheduled to play their respective semi-final matches later today.
Rani will face Thailand's Chuthamat Raksat while Borgohain will take on China's Yang Liu.
Borogohain had defeated Poland's Karolina Koszewska 4-1 in the 69-kg quarterfinals while Rani outclassed North Korea's Kim Hyang Mi 4-1 in the quarter-finals of the 48-kg category.
Boro will take on the top seed and former Asian Games bronze-medallist Huang Hsiao- Wen of Chinese Taipei. Boro had defeated Ursula Gottlob of Germany 4-1 in the quarterfinals.
