NOIDA: NE Rhinos’ Nikhat Zareen drew from the reserves of her energy and skill to edge out Pinki Rani of the Bengaluru Brawlers in the womens 51kg bout on the second day of the Big Bout Indian Boxing League (IBL) at the Gautam Buddha University Indoor Stadium here tonight.
Her win breathed life into NE Rhinos’ faltering campaign.
The battle featuring the young boxer, who hopes to displace the legendary MC Mary Kom in the Indian squad for the Olympic Games, and her senior was bitterly fought. Pinki Rani gained the upper-hand in the first round, impressing the judges.
That brought Nikhat Zareen under pressure and she responded well to rally to a 3-2 decision in the most eagerly awaited bout of the day.
She inspired NE Rhinos to rally from 1-3 to a 4-3 win.
