Olympic medalist boxer Lovlina Borgohain is considering her exit from the pre-quarterfinals of the IBA World Championships ahead of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games as a much-needed "learning". Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist Lovlina's campaign at the World Championships ended with a disappointing loss in the pre-quarterfinals of the 70kg category.
In her first international event since ending her podium campaign in Tokyo last year, Lovlina was defeated 4-1 by Cindy Ngamba of the Fair Chance Team. On the sidelines of the program of honor ceremony of the country's three medalists Nikhat Zareen (Gold, 52kg), Manisha Maun (Bronze, 57kg) and Parveen Hooda (Bronze, 63kg) at the World Championships, Lovlina has said that my preparation (World Championships) for the championship) is not so good.
A lot of things have started to change after the Olympics. I had to give time to many things, to fulfill commitments. He has said that but as there is a saying that you do not learn from your victory, you learn from your defeat and this defeat has also taught me a very important lesson. When asked about future goals, this Assam boxer said that my main goal is still Olympic gold, but I will have to go step by step for it. So my next step is Commonwealth Games and I want to be a champion there.
